--list-splices --split-layers --sheet creates duplicate data in meta.slices #1582

Possibly related to #1234.

When --list-slices is combined with --split-layers --sheet to create a combined atlas (as per, the meta.slices array contains duplicate entries, one per slice per layer. The entries are completely redundant - they don't contain different keys entries per layer.

For example, with two layers "layer-1", "layer-2" and one slice, "my-slice", output would be:

"frames": { "mysprite (layer-1).ase":{...},"mysprite (layer-2).ase":{...}},
"meta":{ ...
        {"name":"my-slice", ... "keys":[{/* key data for layer-1 */}]}
        {"name":"my-slice", ... "keys":[{/* key data for layer-1 */}]}

Note that both slices contain key info for layer-1.
The two entries are completely redundant, and present the bounds data for the base layer. A desirable alternative would be something like:

{ ...
"meta":{ ...
    "slices": [
        {"name":"my-slice", ... "keys":[
            {"frame":0, bounds: {/* bounds for layer-1 */}},
            {"frame":1, bounds: {/* bounds for layer-2 */}}

Example input/output:

To reproduce, use:

aseprite -b --list-slices --split-layers aseprite/bugged.ase --data bugged.json --sheet bugged.png

same thing with --list-tags when combined with --split-layers, the tags will repeat (in order) once per layer.
