Hey Al,
Thanks for taking a closer look at the provided patch. As you guessed 
correctly, I will need more time to check the details ;)

With the proposed --output-oem-event-string option a customer has the option to 
get (exactly) the same output from freeipmi as he gets from the other 
interfaces of the BMC. The iRMC supports a fancy Web interface as well as text 
based menu driven access via SSH/Telnet which all use the same API to decode 
the SEL. The basic idea is to let the BMC decode the event. If there are 
changes in the SEL interpretation or new/additional parameter combinations with 
a firmware update, the BMC will know how to interpret this and external tools 
would not needed to be updated and the output is consistent.
