I personally do *not* care how this file looks. Do coordinate changes
with those people that use it, which is the QA group and Lamby for the
BTS bot. Whatever fits them is what can be done. Well, and whatever fits
into the code. It is dak/queue_report.py in which you want to look.

I will happily merge patches (git trees preferred :) ) when the above is
true, ie. the readers of the file all agreed on one format that fits

<dannf> asking an engineer at hp for part numbers is like asking Ganneff
		for the right mixture of fuel for a 747 - i might happen to know 
        (like if i'd just ordered one) or might know someone who knows, 
         but its a crapshoot :) )
