Since I want to minimize the differences between the common format and 
at least one of the sources (less work), I'll extend the Gump one as 
it's more generic and expandable without breaking Gump. That means that 
Gump can use the expanded one without breaking.

So yes, the format will be a superset of both, but to minimize work it 
will be based on the gump format.
