There's no built-in function for the job, but picking out the characters =
that need special treatment (e.g. replacing newline by "\n") isn't =
difficult. Handling astral characters is a bit tricky because JSON =
requires them to be represented as a surrogate pair, but again the logic =
for that isn't really difficult.
