[erlang-questions] JSON for STDLIB

Team,

Is there any reason why a JSON library is not included into Erlang/OTP
releases? Since it was initially planned for telco systems, it includes
ASN.1 library. It has some other transfer-format libraries as well.

Since Erlang is now widely used in internet domain, I believe that
inclusion of JSON library under STDLIB is essential. There are many open
source variants, but I like Jiffy and Jsx. They support MAPS too.

I propose to the stakeholders, to include one of them into the Erlang/OTP
package. This will ensure the continuity of the library as well.

I don't think JSON will die very soon, although it is loosely defined. Some
times, loose definition is its strength.
