[aur-dev] Absence of terminating newline in RPC requests

JSON from the RPC interface seems to not contain a terminating newline,
regardless of version or type specified. I am curious if there is a
particular reason for this, as the POSIX standard defines text files to
contain lines with terminating newlines. [1] [2]

This is more noticeable when merging the resulting files to a valid JSON
structure, e.g. to display the union of various search results. As a
comparison, journalctl - json does terminate lines with a newline.
