I'm happy with anything that has a well defined strict syntax; i guess it will 
depend on what you already have available inside valgrind as to what's 
easiest for you.  Seeing that the commands the user/client app would be 
issuing are likely to be very simple (ie, just a command name, or a command + 
one argument eg. memory address), a simple custom syntax will be fine; if you 
don't want to create something from scratch, GDB's mi syntax, or xml would be 
two good candidates.
