+1 to a JSON module.

Not sure if there’s mileage in abstracting JSON parsers: when I last looked,
each had its own data models at a higher level than could be usefully unified.
But I’m open to persuasion.

I did some work on this, albeit for a subset of JSON required by a particular project.
I’ll try & dig that up, to see if there’s anything worth salvaging.
