Quick update...

Two new functions have been added, binary_encode/1 and binary_decode/1.
The purpose of these new functions is to disambiguate between strings
and arrays. Most of the time this is not necessary (it seems the vast
majority of JSON data floating around is snippets of ASCII), but it is
easy to provide for so I added these this morning.

Since someone is already using this I'm calling it v1.0.0, as I intend
to support this 4-function interface for a while.


Just one more option in the ocean of JSON encode/decode libs!
