Existing format cannot be changed easily because external tools and scripts rely on it. We may add an option to select a more brief output format. This should be done in conjunction with ticket #109.

In addition to -x, I think it would be nice to also have either -a or -A default to the brief format, depending on which one of the two is commonly used by legacy scripts.

Much of the benefit of the brief format applies in interactive use and -x is a little verbose for that.
