Agreed. JSON certainly is basic enough to support it from the Grok  
core. My suggestion to put it in a separate package for now was so  
that we can play with it and possibly other solutions (using  
simplejson, jsonserver, etc.) without introducing too many  
dependencies in Grok for now and without keeping Grok itself in too  
much flux.
