Due to user requests we added some text along the lines of "12 triples added, 7 removed" in the response to a SPARQL Update requests in 5store. So, whatever format is specified, I'd like to be able to include some human readable text somewhere.

Worst case it can go in a XML comment, but that's not ideal.
