Yeah, that's what I'm saying. All of the commandline tools output
easily parseable lines (this was a specific design decision early on).
XML is a waste (IMNSHO) when the amount of data is of the same order of
magnitude as the XML tags required to wrap that data. There are good
and valid reasons to use XML for structured data exchange; I just don't
think this is one of them...
