Hmm, this means that procstat is not supposed to be used from scripts as
it is apparently OK to change its output format like this?

In some ways, querying via ps would be better for scripts since it
allows things like
  ps -p PID -o KEYWORD=
which do not need additional parsing except that many of the newer
things in procstat do not have ps keywords.
