I've actually tried something very similar, and I was actually surprised that (at least with the libraries I tried) JSON serialization actually adds a considerable overhead to just writing out the save game data compared to the current situation. (My experiment was in ToME 2, but I'd assume it's pretty similar in Angband -- I don't think the code has changed that much.)

Some of this has to do with the absurd overhead of serializing e.g. each dungeon tile as individual strings, etc., but...
