More "script friendly" responses from root

Currently, some responses from root have no clear ending.. an 'info' request on an OSCAR user for example; the profile will not have any ending marker. It is also not clear to a non-human to whom the profile belongs. Another example:

21.205853 <@f0rked> info test
21.205854 <@root> jabber( - User Info
21.205854 <@root> Jabber ID: - Status: Away: this is a
21.205854 <@root> multiline
21.205854 <@root> away message

I am trying to adapt my irssi script to the new jabber module, but there is currently no way to tell where the away message ends without a timer. With OSCAR users, it is possible because the "User Info" line will always follow the away message. As a general request, it would be exceptionally handy to be able to interact with the bee in a scripted fashion to obtain information automatically for all protocols without hacks (bitlbee_status_notice obtains and prints away messages to query windows with oscar users). Perhaps an option could be enabled to print markers after (and before?) the information blocks that root spits out.

Yeah, I am also voting for this because it makes it difficult for me developing plugins for irssi. Thanks.
