Awesome to hear that you are building this already. Are you interested
in open sourcing it? My goal is to build a faster JSON parser for
CouchDB. I don't mind doing the work, but if you already have
something happening, why duplicate work?

Thanks for the technical feedback. I'll definitely take a look at the
marshaling stuff, but I'd rather look at your json stuff. :)
