I took a cursory look at this and it seems interesting. I had never
seen it before. I should be easy to

a) copy some files over to the serialization library - ojason_archive ..
and ijason_archive
b) tweak the test setup to include these "new" archive classes
c) run the whole serialization librar test suite - which is quite a bit
d) with the jam setup, one can restrict tests only to one specific
archive (or even one specific test) . So running it locally on one's
machine is quite practical.

It if passes everything, has any required additional documentation (very
little) and it's truely a drop in replacement for any other archive and
it meets the "ramey coding standards" (not too anal), and willing to
support complaints from users of the json archive (not really that bad),
I'll be happy to add it the list of included archives along with xml,
et. al.

This will make you an official boost developer (if you aren't already)
with out going through most of the boost agony.

If you don't want to do it but someone else does, the same offer would
apply to them.
