I think that what'd be very useful is:

- some kind of separator
- some timestamp (à la Org?  with or without seconds)
- some language info?
- a referrer to the code block (like the =comments= in tangled files)

The separator could even be (why not?) a Org heading: the entire output buffer
could be an Org file, allowing for folding of less useful entries, or sparse
tree searches:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* 2010-11-23 Tue 22:29:11 sh block
/* [[file:~/src/test.org::*Commands][Commands:1]] */
Invalid command: ls\r
Invalid command: date\r
/* Commands:1 ends here */
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Just a proposition example... For me, whatever the format...

Best regards,

Sébastien Vauban
