The format string shall be (in Python syntax) `r'<i([^-]+)-([^-]*-)(.*)'`.
The first capture group shall be a format. The currently recognized formats are `gb`, `r16`, and `r85`, though any format can be used. A program SHOULD gracefully report and exit on an unknown or unsupported format. The identifier of a format may not include a hyphen (dash).
The second capture group (may be empty) shall be known as the header and its syntax shall be defined by the format.
The second capture group (optional) shall be known as the header and its syntax shall be defined by the format, but if present it MUST contain exactly one hypen and it must be the last character in the header.
