Wanted to get feedback about the following "extensions" to bash that will

NOT to "compete" with Python/Javascript (and other full scale language) -
just to make it easier to build bash scripts that cover the very common use
case of submitting REST requests with curl (checking results, etc), and to
perform simple processing of JSON files.

I do not think bash needs to sprout functionality to support every
data-exchange format of the month.  A loadable module might be okay,
I guess.

Loadable builtins are the way to do this; you can encapsulate all the
functionality you need there without changes to bash itself.
