This is an important point. JSON can be used by tools other than 
DUB (IDEs etc.)

Let me suggest the following:

1. JSON as default format in DUB when you type `dub init`; SDL as 
second option
2. a JSON <=> SDL converter (will be needed for community 
3. add the ability to add comments to JSON files in DUB, so DUB 
can handle comments in JSON and JSON's biggest disadvantage 
disappears (as does the bikeshed)
