i think my idea was that the cli parameter count for the
disklist_test.pm would be reduced -- but i notice that actually this
doesn't bring anything so i suppose we can leave this part out.

into it.

the comment was removed by mistake, sorry!

the json result (although then we might have to handle for potential
errors during parsing, so it might be better to keep it as before)
