You'd have to actively try in order to make it difficult to parse in any 
case :) While this doesn't break cut, it needs a bit of extra attention when 
you're using a regex.

I think a more future proof solution is to allow the default output to be 
arbitrarily fancy, but have an option that produces fixed-form output so you 
can trivially parse the data in your favourite scripting language.
