In my example below, I'd like them to take ownership of the
uf2families.json file. Then we can jq our way to success.

➜  file git:(bcr-uf2) ✗ cat uf2families.json
    { "id": "0x68ed2b88", "description": "Microchip (Atmel) SAMD21" },
    { "id": "0x1851780a", "description": "Microchip (Atmel) SAML21" },
    { "id": "0x55114460", "description": "Microchip (Atmel) SAMD51" }
➜  file git:(bcr-uf2) ✗ jq -r '.[] | ">>28 lelong
\(.id)\t\(.description)"' uf2families.json
>>28 lelong 0x68ed2b88  Microchip (Atmel) SAMD21
>>28 lelong 0x1851780a  Microchip (Atmel) SAML21
>>28 lelong 0x55114460  Microchip (Atmel) SAMD51
➜  file git:(bcr-uf2) ✗

Thank you for maintaining!

Also, you note that I skipped the checking of the two magic numbers.
You got a philosophy about that? It's probably safer than just the uf2
string check, but probably overkill, and I note you didn't add it back
