| type='tab' is not a dictate, it is a hint, to help clients split all
fields in
| some groups.  Console clients can simple ignore it.  If you don't like
name
| 'tab', let's call it 'separator', 'section' or something else.
Separator or section I could deal with, but we should avoid the slippery
slope of 'its a hint, clients can ignore it', because that could be said
of field lengths, pixel positioning, etc. Separator does perform a
useful data function though, as opposed to a representation function, so
I can agree with it.
