I also only ever use JSON. When SDL was introduced, it was 
promised "JSON will never be deprecated". And here people are 
wanting to deprecate JSON as if SDL parsers were all that 

JSON is the answer, SDL is the failed experiment that just bring 
disagreement :)

We DO parse dub.json a lot. I suspect any D organization probably 
does because dub describe is slow.

I don't care how "inhuman" a 20-line file is.
