JSON output for cargo test

This tool requires the test data output in the JSON format. This can be achieved by running cargo test with additional options:

cargo test -- -Z unstable-options --report-time --format json

Currently, the JSON format option is unstable. Still it does work anyway with stable Rust and didn't change much so far.

Also, might the cargo test command output additional, non-JSON, messages, mixed into the JSON output. The markdown reporter will simply filter out those lines.
