HMP isn't meant to be parsed. It's explicitly *not* API or ABI. I do
like consistency in my UIs (it's useful for human eyes, too), but I'd
like to know more about the request.

Is this request coming from libvirt? Can we wean them off of this
interface? What do they need as a replacement?

(Is blockdev not enough?)
