Yes, but what if anyone want to easily pretty print records from a program? *gasp*

A suggestion is to use my little contribution to jungerl (lib/msc/src/record_info.erl) to convert the record to a list of key/value pairs, and then printing it so that it still looks like a record should be trivial. 

If time permits, I might add printing to the file myself.

regards,
Vlad
