wow, yep that's a really good point. I have built a JSON app, but it just sends out data and the module that generates the JSON has minifier code built into it so I have never had the need to process it anywhere else. But if you need to write JSON from scratch I can see where this module would be really useful.

You obviously haven't built a JSON API yet Each request will be JS and will
be different.
