The default output is meant to be human-readable, but for expert
humans I guess. I'm not sure that having Yet Another Output Format
would be good; instead, why not write a wrapper that runs status with
the --xml flag and parses the result, displaying it to the user in
some arbitrarily beautiful fashion?
