While it makes it more flexible, I think only producing some kind of
"generic" output makes it less likely that it would get used.  Better
perhaps is offering multiple formats.  Don should be posting some code
soon, but I think you'll find that it won't be hard to make multiple output

the command format is currently : net rpc vampire ldif

It could easily be exapnded to have "net rpc vampire xml" or whatever such
