Yes but such tradeoff is positive to end user.

One often needs dump of quite complex data structures.
Controlling their visual appearance from C++ code feels
as large burden.

As the ideal solution I would imagine
something what takes the dumped data
and with using some heuristics arranges them
into most readable form.

User the could rearrange the data
on HTML page (e.g. using Javascript) and
this re-arrangement would be stored somewhere
and used next time these data are shown.
