Subject Re: json referencing using private member
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2009 16:52:29 GMT
ok, thought so - in that case can we reserve _parent :-)

I think XML -> JSON is going to be common with CouchDB  whether you do
it with Python, Java or Erlang, it would be good (at the moment,
probably just for me) to reserve a top level key to facilitate XML to
JSON.
