Mmmm.  It's very common for JSON libraries, see eg. Jansson, to not add 
a newline because it's easier for the consumer to add one if necessary 
than it is to reliably remove one.  I wouldn't personally mind having it 
add one, but at the same time I don't see much of a reason to implement 
it either.  On a related note, it would be nice to rewrite the RPC, 
because it's a bit weird code.
