[fpc-pascal] *.rst vs *.rsj

Somewhere after FPC 2.6.4 the FPC compiler changed to generating JSON
based *.rsj files for resource strings.

1.  What was the benefit of doing that? After all, FPC always prides
itself in not breaking backward compatibility (Florian and others have
said that many times), yet now FPC has done just that. I have quite a
few tools that work with the *.rst files. They all now need to be
rewritten for the JSON variant.

2.  Is it possible to tell FPC 3.0.4 to rather generate the previous
*.rst files instead of the default *.rsj?
