I don't like this idea, as the main intent of my suggestion was
to make the message more useful to a human.  For example, including
the machine the job was last running on, and formating the command
executed a bit more cleanly.

While we are considering changes to the format, I think it would
be nice to make it more easily parsable, but I don't regard this
as the most important aspect of my suggestion.
