Re: JSON Propositions
- Excellent call on removing comments from your JSON parser, despite liking them. Part of my project with Eon is getting wide language support, so I'm happy to see the code for the JSON parser for REBOL is maintainable. :)
Most of the efforts to add comments to JSON gloss over the fact that the JSON format is both very clear and final, so I think that even though none of those has really caught on, my project has a chance.

- The beauty and usefulness of JSON is in my opinion more of what they left
out than what they took in.
Any attempts to extend it is to make it less useful.
