Additionally, it's a lot easier to read when indented properly,
especially with the block info containing nested dicts.

Nice trick. Why didn't I come up with it? ;)

It definitely is a bit ugly, though. We can't just drop the entire line
(using "d") as the entire stream now is a single line. Matching
parenthesis pairs is context sensitive, so we can't just use regular
expressions to aggregate results into lines. And before I start
implementing a JSON indenter in awk, I'd rather rewrite the whole test
in Python. So if we stay with the shell test for now, we need something
like your incantation above. It's not perfect, but good enough for now
and I can't think of anything significantly simpler right now either.

Will test your version and send a v2. Thanks for the suggestion!
