Sounds good to me.

We might want to take this opportunity to define a "version=2" header  
of some sort, so that in the future, the tools will immediately know  
whether or not they are compatible. (At some point, we might want to  
move to a key-value format, especially if the information gets too  
sparse because of differences between PDUs and UPSes.)

Do any Linux distributions do any processing based on that file?
