The currently provided output formats, YAML, JSON, INI, and Data::Dumper, are great for munging data into a format that can later be processed by full-fledged programs. However, they're much less easy to process with the standard UNIX tools, to which, I'd like to think, dpath would make a very decent companion in theory. Having a simple, textual, and line based output format that lends itself well to processing by the standard suite of UNIX tools, would be lovely, even if it'd just cover emitting certain kinds of simple data.
