As I've been using Extended Events, one thing I've sorely missed is some ability to aggregate in real-time, like the histogram, but over more than one field.  

For instance, if I could tell it to count the number of instances for a particular client_app_name/client_hostname/database_name. 

Saving to the ring_buffer doesn't work in many cases (I have to allocate a large amount of RAM to it or risk losing events), and saving to disk requires more steps (especially if xp_cmdshell is off and you need to delete the file when done).
