> Google introduced a new Service Account key format (JSON) and over time this will likely
become the preferred format. We should begin by supporting this new format soon. If Google
does make this the default, we may want to follow-up and issue a (debug | info) warning to
users relying on P12 format.
> AFAIK, there is no clear documentation on this format. However, if you open up the Developers
Console and look under "APIs & Auth" -> "Credentials", you'll see the "Generate New
JSON Key" button next to any existing Service Accounts (or be given the option to create one
with a new SA).
