Wouldn't it make more sense to have a level of indirection so other 
"fru" formats might be supported as well. As far as I can see, only 
"your" type of FRU data is supported by this command and there is now 
way to extend it.

Also why do the user have to manually do a "fru capture"? The use case 
is to display any FRU data, correct? So from a users perspective a "fru 
display" be sufficient to display the data.
