I added another handler that output the B. term format ( JSON {} =>
Erlang {[]} ) which turned out to be a 6 character change from
Willem's handler. I also added a variation on mochijson's test suite,
and profile() function that runs the test suite under fprof.

You can profile by json_parser:profile().
