You mean BSM format?  Yes, I think Serge and I talked about it briefly
a few months ago.  The current method is tokenized and reasonably
extensible.  It's not quite record+tokens like BSM, but there's an initial
record that tells you how many ancillary records (items) to expect.
And each record is made up primarily of token=value pairs.  I think
we should provide what makes sense, and do any BSM type translation
in userspace.  But having _some_ BSM compatibility would be wise, since
that's what many tools deal with.
