I think some tabular format would be handy because it is very easy to
parse with scripts, and because it is a natural natural way to get
e.g. a list of message-ids.

--format=tabular --output=message-id

On the other hand, I'm not yet using this code, so I guess the main
point is to discuss how output control should be implemented, and in
that sense the patch is a demo. I suspect once we start using json
output more, we will definitely want it there.

All the best,
