Disallow unnecessary computed property keys on objects (no-useless-computed-key)

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

It’s unnecessary to use computed properties with literals such as:

var foo = {["a"]: "b"};

The code can be rewritten as:

var foo = {"a": "b"};
