I'm glad to hear it but I have to say that for the software development
it is important to minimize the number of the external libraries count.

Every external dependence (i.e. library) leads to the additional costs:
- the license compatibility must be checked
- the version compatibility must be checked
- the library must be built and installed
- if the library is abandoned, it's a problem
- etc.

One of the benefits of the Boost is that it is licensed, tested and
distributed as one thing. And I think that it would be good for your
json parser if it was included into the Boost.

PS. For now, I'm using my own implementation of the json parser. I would
be happy to switch to the external one if it was included into one of
the libraries I'm already using.

Best regards,
