Hey all, so I've been wondering about how to express
debug/tracing output to user-facing command-line tools.

Our test suite already uses TAP.  So does git.git, Perl itself
and the majority of Perl projects I've encountered.

But I haven't seen it used for user-facing CLI tools...
It seems better than inventing random new formats *shrug*
