This new script is going to have to be protected by a prerequisite
since the JSON module is not part of the standard Perl installation,
thus will not necessarily be installed everywhere (it isn't on any of
my machines, for instance). Something like:

    test_lazy_prereq PERLJSON '
        perl -MJSON -e "exit 0"
    '

which would be used like this:

    test_expect_success PERLJSON 'parse JSON using Perl' '
        ...
    '
