I've printed that to study over the weekend.
Thing is, it doesn't have to be *better*. It could even *be*
the mochijson2 code. Part of what Joe was getting at, I think,
is that it would be nice if JSON support were a standard part
of Erlang/OTP in *some* fashion. That way everyone who wants
to use JSON builds (for export) and sees (from import) the same
kind of Erlang data.
From a quick glance at the that code, I believe that a BIF *could*
be usefully faster. Whether it is worth putting the effort into it
is another matter. There are also some interface issues; I would
value your comments on my EEP.
If stupidity were a crime, who'd 'scape hanging?
