Sure, in general it's nice for protocols and serialization formats to
be texty, in order for them to be human-readable and -writable. On
this instance, however, generating Python string literals that are both
correct and human-readable seems to me like it'd be an effort spent for
little gain. (I think there's a good chance that no one will _ever_
run entries-dump by hand again once it properly supports Python 3.)

One easy way to make the output nicer is to name the lambda function.

Precisely. Sorry, I should've made that clear.
