I don't think we should be catering for people parsing command output =
(beyond recognising that folk currently do it, and trying not to break =
them). Instead, we should focus on making interfaces that provide =
properly stuctured output available - things like the AFS-Perl module =
are a great example here.

In terms of what our commands display, we should prioritise human users.
