It's the output from the ArcGIS "Write Features to Text File (Samples)"
tool. The "format" is documented here:
Even ESRI use Python to read/write it :)
Apparently it's deprecated though...

In this case, I need to write it, but thanks -- I'm sure the same

Sure, and that's what I've done, but then OGR is not writing it, I am
writing it with Python -- which I agree is not that big a deal but still
harder than one command line with ogr2ogr.
It doesn't really sound like this is a "format" that it would make sense
to support -- which is probably why OGR doesn't support it.
