From: John Snow <jsnow@redhat.com>

This includes support for [] expressions, single-quotes in
QMP expressions (which is not strictly a part of JSON), and
the ability to use "True", "False" and "None" literals instead
of JSON's equivalent true, false, and null literals.

qmp-shell currently allows you to describe values as
JSON expressions:
key={"key":{"key2":"val"}}

But it does not currently support arrays, which are needed
for serializing and deserializing transactions:
key=[{"type":"drive-backup","data":{...}}]

qmp-shell also only currently accepts doubly quoted strings
as-per JSON spec, but QMP allows single quotes.

Lastly, python allows you to utilize "True" or "False" as
boolean literals, but JSON expects "true" or "false". Expand
qmp-shell to allow the user to type either, converting to the
correct type.

As a consequence of the above, the key=val parsing is also improved
to give better error messages if a key=val token is not provided.

CAVEAT: The parser is still extremely rudimentary and does not
expect to find spaces in {} nor [] expressions. This patch does
not improve this functionality.
