Why do we need this new file can't we just update the current trigger
file implementation?

I don't see any documentation that states that the read of the trigger
file will print a list of known triggers.

And writing to the trigger file still works so I would think the _show
just needs to be fixed.

Besides this patch does not fix the issue in the commit message that the
trigger file still violates the one value per file rule.
