Just a little remark: we aren't going to force authors to use an specific
format for the data they produce.

We'll suggest using our standard format, but we intend to split very
clearly the functional part of the system (the algorithm executables) from
presentation issues.

So, if the algorithm output doesn't match our format, it should be the
python demo code the one that does the conversion.
Of course, if the executable produces its output with exactly the format
we expect, then it makes things easier.
