We lack a [dtd/json] spec for tools, so programming for xo'ification doesn't 
seems like the best idea in the world to me from a end-user sysadmin/developer 

I could just as easily use standard tools like awk, grep, sed, and more 
advanced languages like perl or Python to parse output, and assuming output 
doesn't get a major rewrite, I'd just go with that method that's worked pretty 
well for me over the last 10 years of my career..
