I wonder if all this format discussion might keep us away to continue
with the simple solution to just do it and break things that are
outside. IMHO it should not stop our progress if outside people are
using things that are intended for inside. I would be very happy if
some of the perl programmers would do that supposedly simple change and
we could continue with interesting things.
