I think this is good enough. It should be returned in a structure. That's what 
rules does. Userspace interprets the structure and prints it. Let's reuse 
current structures instead of making new ones.

But since you have "name=foo", you could also go ahead and look up that path 
and return the additional data that you were wanting to return. This needs to 
be real simple (from the user's perspective) to be effective.

You don't need a remove all. This can be done in userspace just like the 
rules. I get the list and bounce it back with a remove. Let's keep it simple.
