I think I was leaning towards 'no' last time around on this.

I think we should prioritise human readability in tc output. If we want
to have a mode that is easy to parse, make it a separate one (was
looking for a 'machine-readable' switch to tc, but there doesn't seem to
be one).

Would it be viable to get a patch into iproute that makes it sprout csv
or json, do you think?

Besides, as far as being a pain to parse, the 'tin table' is way worse,
as far as I'm concerned.
