// JSON requires escape sequences to be valid UTF-16 code units. This output
// will be mangled if passed to to the base::JSONReader, since the reader will
// interpret it as UTF-16 and convert it to UTF-8.
// The output of this function takes the *appearance* of JSON but is not in
// fact valid according to RFC 4627.
