On second thought. If you just need a temporary debugging interface,
adding a program in t/helper may be a better option. In the end we
might still need 'read' to dump a file out, but we should have some
stable output format (and json might be a good choice).

That's it I'm done for today. I will continue on the rest some day, hopefully.
