When I built my tools in python on top of the wg command I was
please to see a machine interface, but find the \t separated list
of values odd to find in a modern app.

I think it would be a good addition to have the JSON output
without the need to use a contrib script. Many text commands
output in JSON or XML for ease of interfacing.

The JSON would also provide a nice way to add more attributes
in the future.
