Feature #16502: Add option :allow_trailing_comma to JSON#parse

Hello everyone,

I'd like to be able to parse JSON sources that contain trailing commas in arrays and/or objects.

For example,

``` ruby
> JSON.parse('[1,2,3,]')
JSON::ParserError: 416: unexpected token at ']'
```


I have created a [pull request](https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/2831) to add the option :allow_trailing_comma to JSON#parse:

``` ruby
> JSON.parse('[1,2,3,]', allow_trailing_comma: true)
[1, 2, 3]
```


I would kindly like to ask you to consider this patch for merging in Ruby core. 


Regards,
Jan-Joost Spanjers
