Thank you for reporting this issue.
Now fixed in:

While I agree that this output is less than optimal,
it has been the same for at least 21 years.
Changing it now will break a long held format and might break
existing scripts.

Any desired format can be specified with "--format",
there is an "--verbose" option to output all information
in a more readable way,
and I'm also happy to learn about other formats that are
commonly used, and add a short option for it.
