removing spaces and newlines also makes the responses much harder to
read for humans.
>From json.org :
'JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange
format. It is easy for humans to read and write.'

personally I'd rather accept the small extra weight for the advantage
of being able to read the output when debugging / developing

if you are going to go this way, then let's at least make it not strip
formatting when the params have &debug in them
