The "obvious" way to support Json in Bash would be a utility that parses
Json and produces e.g. a Bash associative array, and conversely a
utility that reads a Bash associative array and produces Json.  The real
limitation is that it's difficult to have a subprocess set Bash's
variables.  As far as I know, there's no good idiom for that.

That's why a loadable builtin is the preferred mechanism.
