Add a series of jw_ routines and "struct json_writer" structure to compose
JSON data.  The resulting string data can then be output by commands wanting

To make it easier on people writing these tests, it might be nice for
this to be less noisy by getting rid of "@" and "\". To get rid of
"\", the test program could grab its script commands from stdin (one
instruction per line) rather than from argv[]. For instance:

     test-json-writer >actual <<-\EOF &&
             object-string a abc

Not a big deal, and certainly not worth a re-roll.

I hadn't thought about doing it that way.  Might be a little easier
to use.  Let me take a look and see if it would be much work to switch.
