The -c output  from chronyc looks really good and useful.

My OSX program, ChronyControl, runs a persistent connection to chronyc and sends it a ‘tracking’ command every (user configurable) few seconds. Currently this is of course parsing the display format of the tracking command.

To get CSV output I would have to run a new instance of chronic every few seconds and this seems like a lot of overhead.

Would it be possible to add an optional argument to the internal chronyc commands to have them also return CSV format? Optionally JSON and XML would be nice formats as well.
