Ugh, please, let's not go down the autoconf/automake/libtool route.

Awesome, I was just looking at using json-glib but I haven't gotten
very far yet, mainly because I've never used it before (nor done much
of anything with JSON). I was going to call the option
'--output-format=(standard|json)' but I'm not going to worry about the
color of that bikeshed.
IMHO, I think both approaches would be valuable, that way people
writing front ends could choose the methods that worked best for them.
Do you have patches that you are ready to share?
