My reply is not at all a comment on your candidacy, just a few remarks
on the topics you've raised (and on which I agree with you).

Yeah, it's kind of amazing we're relying all our command line outputs on
a release of prettytable that is from 2013! Lucky, nobody in Debian
complained that it hasn't been updated...

We're currently using:
- anyjson
- ujson
- jsonpatch
- jsonschema
- jsonpath
- jsonpath-rw
- jsonpath-rw-ext
- simplejson
- jsonpointer

I'm not sure what they all do, but it does feel like there's room for
improvement... :)
