Thank you, and I will add it to my testbed tomorrow.

It will take some time until I get to a full assessment of all of them,
and in view of the many contributions I'm not making promises if and
when I'm disclosing any results. :-)

I shouldn't have written that "Lua would be fine", because I am more
after a dumper written in C. Any candidates? Maybe I will simply pick a
Lua one and transfer it to C. And I'm still taking MsgPack and JSON
format into consideration, too, despite some limitations.
