As I mentioned in another email, I have no problem with an easy to parse
file. But I will aggressively NAK any "python" or other scripting
language. I'm sure I would get the same response if I were to have the
kernel outputting perl language ;)

I would be OK if we have two files similar to stat and status, where one
format is human readable, the other is for parsing.

Thus, the only acceptable language that should come out of the kernel is
English.
