In case JSON ends up being a thing, I recently contributed to a JSON
project, https://github.com/skeeto/pdjson. It's a streaming parser,
and is the only C JSON parser that passes / fails all the tests as
expected in https://github.com/nst/JSONTestSuite
(http://seriot.ch/parsing_json.php). It's ~700 LOC with header files,
and supports custom allocators.

Unsure whether strict correctness is required, but it certainly can't
hurt (especially if folks end up building e.g. VMODs on top of it).
