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
this re-arrangement would be stored somewhere
and used next time these data are shown.
