JSON output for legacy CLI utils

All the legacy (good old) CLI commands have the output in different way. Sometimes it is not machine-readable, sometimes it has not enough data, sometime it truncates strings. Good example is omnistat.
Please add the possibility to set -json key to have the machine readable and scripting-ready JSON output. That should be added for almost all frequently used commands: omnistat, omnidb, omnirpt, omnidownload, omnimm and others.
Profit is the good-looking similar output style, that simplifies scripting.
I know there’s a REST api but it’s not mature enough. There’s thousand situation where cli and scripting is much more useful.
