If by pretty-print you mean presenting JSON over multiple lines with indenting and such then no, as this will break manual results which is based on the assumption that one-line=one-result.

I have no objection if George wants to add output to the non-JSON output, but support for any new format will not be added to manual results parsing (we don't want users submitting less data).

I'm curious what part you find less-than-readable about the JSON results? If it would be universally considered helpful the JSON elements could be re-ordered without causing any problems.
