Contains extended profile information as requested by the client.
Values are returned in the order they were requested. If the server refuses access to a requested key or the value is invalid or otherwise cannot be serialized as text, it prints an empty string for that value instead. No other error information is given from server to client to indicate what occurred to cause an empty string to be printed.
Also keep in mind that while the client may request a specific number of accounts and keys, the server may return 0 accounts and 0 keys in the reply. Clients should gracefully handle such scenarios. There should never be a scenario that the server replies with a partial number of keys or values than requested, it is either all or none, as these partial boundaries cannot be determined by the client during de-serialization.
If it is desired to graphically display or print values returned, note that the fields may contain characters that are otherwise not alphanumeric, such as tab or newline characters.
In addition, while official clients do not allow multiple lines in some values, such as
profile\location, the server does not prevent this and some bots actively allow the user to put newlines into fields that the official clients only allow one line for.
