Usually you just have to do it and see what happens.  Even if we all
agree on a format here, someone else might disagree on gdb-patches, or
they might think of some new reason for it to be different.

I, personally, want some form of this change, because every time I type
"p FOO" and get "$1 = FOO", I think, grrr, gdb could have told me what I
really wanted to know.  If enough people dislike it we can always add
'set print blah blah'.
