Great - you beat me to it - I was going to ask if we could fix strace
;-). If it can be taught the id/union semantics I'd rather do that,
so we could then also format the 64-bit values appropriately.
e.g. flags and values are both bitmaps but the bits are interpreted
very differently.

Cheers,
Kent.
