New idea for uptime

Hello there,

for a long time the absence of a parseable output for "uptime"
has irked me. If you want to use "uptime" within scripts that
evaluate the output the current format is a nightmare.
Therefore I propose an option "-p" or "--parseable" that
produces another form of output:

 10:36am  up 118 days 13:05,  30 users,  load average: 0.39, 0.30, 0.29

parseable (uptime is in seconds since boot, no current time):
  10242380    31    0.30    0.29    0.29

What do you think about it? You find a diff output as attachment.
