Why?  The 'API' in the case of an libxo-ised program is a stream on stdout that 
is then consumed by a JSON or XML parser. XML and JSON are intrinsically 
extensible formats.  This is *the entire point* of libxo: that we can extend 
the output from these tools without breaking things that wish to consume them 
and which currently rely on fragile parsers.
