digitalmars.D - dmd -v=json for machine readable output (and parsing dmd.conf)

Could we have a `dmd -v=json` ? Related: would be nice to also show (in json output) fields including dflags and lflags to avoid having to do the work that the compiler already did: `dmd | grep 'Config file'` Config file: path/to/etc/dmd.conf followed py parsing the contents of `dmd.conf` which could look like this: ``` [Environment32] DFLAGS=-I% P%/../../src/phobos -I% P%/../../src/druntime/import -L-L% P%/../lib32 -L--export-dynamic [Environment64] DFLAGS=-I% P%/../../src/phobos -I% P%/../../src/druntime/import -L-L% P%/../lib64 -L--export-dynamic -fPIC ``` and then selecting the appropriate environment, and interpretting the P, then parsing the corresponding entries into lflags and dflags. This is a lot of work, it makes no sense not to expose it.
