I've said this before, but, yes, break the world.
I'd say just propose these changes. I think we can afford to break compat in
the CLI output. The CLI is for interactive use. People can script against
it, sure. But they should be using XML output where possible, or use the
bindings, if they rely on their scripts for production rather than quick
run-once-and-throw-away hacks.
