Hi Sean,

Yes, I imagine this would probably be best handled as an alternate
encoder/serializer.  While it should be very similar to the existing
json serialization, json-ld would need a few changes to accommodate
certain quirks/limitations of that spec.

I'm interested in working on this, but I don't know when I will have
time.  Good to know that there is some outside interest, though.
