So, the end goal is to design a formatting API that can be used by any
command that takes --format option? Previous interns worked on
unifying pretty.c and cat-file.c with ref-filter.c and so the next task can
be to extend "valid_atom" state machine to work with more commands.
Do you have any suggestions for new atoms/verbs I could add
support for or any such similar small exercise to start with?
