Subject: Re: [boost] JSON Parsing Library for GSoC 14

As for the JSON library, if I'm correct there is already something in
Boost.PropertyTree that works pretty well ?

However, maybe generalizing the idea of parsing tag based text files could
be a great addition to Boost. A little bit like Boost.Proto is a library
for creating DSL in C++, you could try to make a library to parse tag based
language and as a proof of concept, show that it can parse XML, JSON and a
subset of LaTeX.

By the way, this gentleman would like to be mentored for GSOC 2014. I
personally recommend him.
