Sorry my English, please.

I did not know about PR 5435. Now I know.

But I still do not know what the result will be in case of «-w %{JSON}» AND another variables
(content_type, filename_effective, etc) together. This is not described in the manual.
And the JSON output will always be consist from ONE line? This is not described in the manual too.
