I think this is like a debugging thing.  Emacs shouldn't be a platform
to debug the applications running in it.  It should just run the
applications.  :-)

As a user, I don't care, and I shouldn't care about what format the
application stores the information in.  So even putting that option in
the prompt gives a bad User eXperience, in my opinion.  It's just
confusing.

Displaying irrelevant info is almost as bad as not displaying info the
user needs.  (Note "user", not "implementer".  :-)
