Derived though from Javascript as it may be, JSON is not
Javascript, and there is no such thing in JSON as an unquoted

Dump your data structure to JSON incrementally and interpolate
the JSON snippets into a template that generates Javascript which
does whatever you need to build the final data structure. (You’re
generating Javascript and not JSON anyway.)
