It's probably worth pointing out that the getdns
dictionary that's being returned in C is not a JSON
dict, and the various language bindings already have
their own language-idiomatic mechanisms for dereferencing
data in the returned dictionaries.  So, while I'm not
necessarily against using JSON pointer syntax here I'm
also not sure that it has any clear advantages over
any other syntax.
