Having a closing marker makes it easier to parse, since it does not require
a special case for the end of file.

On the other hand, I do not like the current format either, because [ and ]
are active characters for the shell and for regular expressions. I would
find something like that much more practical:


An empty line instead of END_PACKET, if it's guaranteed to be there and only
there, is fine too.
