Can I specify a "format" for the choose-session window beyond text attributes, foreground, background and other cosmetic factors?

Specifically: can I somehow set something that will always supply the right -F format string I use for list-sessions, list-windows, etc.?

I would like to be able to choose a session from a list which has some additional formatting and information about the different sessions compared to the defaults...
