Which files exactly are we talking about? What about "files" (no pun intended ;) in the local db?
Lemme see if I recall correctly. The second format is obviously our current DB format. The first is the .PKGINFO file in the package tarballs themselves.
I, also, like the first format better.
Here's on thing that wasn't brought up above - list parsing:
[ list = one list = two list = three ] vs [ %LIST% one two three ]
Sure we do understand that there's also list parsing. And still the first format is better :P
