The first group of patches refactor the printout to breakup
excessively long print_route function and the last few implement
JSON and color output format for routes.

The one thing that maybe controversial is changing the default
json output format to be compact. The value of JSON is for programattic
output therefore pretty-printing should be an option.

One change I didn't make (but considered) is not calling fflush
after every single entry. When dumping millions of routes, letting
stdio buffer output would be a performance win.
