Which format do we like more?
[ foo = bar baz = blah ] vs [ %FOO% bar
And try not to think about where/when bash and python and things like that need this data - that's a non-issue as we can always write helper utils using libalpm's parsing if it becomes really hard for things like, say, namcap.
+1 for the first format. I looks better IMO + it i s easier to work with bash, sed, grep etc.
