We make no promises to keep the output the same. 

What we do promise to keep the same is support for condor_q -format. If you're
developing on top of condor tools, always use the -format options.

In the case of -l (show the entire classad), we have changed the names of the
attributes in the past (most recently, all of the file transfer stuff was
redone...) It's unlikely that we'll change the 'executable' or 'requirements'
names anytime soon.

It's not really a .Net application.

There will be a SOAP API to submit available. An incomplete version will be in
6.7.0 (probably without authentication, so it'll be disabled by default). Your
.Net application could take advantage of that.
