Comment (by eschnett):

 Thorn Formaline's design goal is to store sufficient information about
 simulations to make them reproducible. Most people know that it stores the
 complete source code by default. It also stores all parameter values, as
 well as regular updates if parameters ares steered. It uses a simple
 "KEY=VALUE" format for this, but can also generate several other formats
 (XML, or submit to a web server in real-time so that simulation progress
 can be more easily observed).

 I'd be happy to modify the output format to make it easier to parse.

 Is there particular value in having the parameters stored, as string, in
 each HDF5 file, or would an external metadata file be sufficient?
