    Man, thanks for that question - it made me learn something new! But the answer to your question is quite conventional: you need a custom plugin for that.
    It doesn't have to be complicated, though. It only needs to have one one method:

        public function discussionsApiController_getOutput_handler($result) {

            return $result;
