One of the reasons we are using the current file format is the structure: in
pywikibot, the typical use case is 'getting a few strings from a lot of
languages', while the general use case (e.g. for mediawiki) is 'getting a lot
of strings from a single language'.

On tools-login, parsing all mediawiki's json files takes 3-5 seconds. For many
bot users, this might be a lot longer (slower computer, slower hard drive),
which (I think) is not reasonable.

Switching to a json-based format with the same file structure would be OK with
