This loses the hanging indentation in the example, but I don't see you
making that change in the actual .json files. It shouldn't matter in
the long run, and is certainly easier if the way you generated this
patch was with sed scripts (where computing correct hanging indentation
after rewrapping is a lot harder than omitting it). I don't have any
strong opinions about the change (less typing, but slightly harder to
visually see that the following lines belong to the same parameter doc,
if you don't have blank lines between distinct parameter docs). I'm not
even sure if it you want to call it out in the commit message as an
intentional reformat, particularly since you didn't do it everywhere.

Again, whitespace changes shouldn't affect generated output, so
rewrapping lines like this would be more busy-work than necessary, even
though this particular example would now fit on one line.

Here's another place where wrapping now looks odd (short, followed by
multiple longer lines). Again, the effort of rewrapping lines is not
worth the churn (and it's actually easier to read diffs that _don't_
reflow text). So I'll just overlook wrapping oddities in the rest of
the patch, as inconsequential to the end result.
