Hello "IETF"!

I think you might be an evil organisation. But I am not afraid... not
anymore! :-))

Now to everyone, and to the post: There is a new tool, and a new campaign.
The campaign is called JSON+C, and the tool is JSONMinify. (The bigger
universe behind that is called TinyBrain.)

JSONMinify <http://jsonminify.tinybrain.de> is a Java library *THAT
WORKS*(see below) that removes whitespace and comments from JSON/
*JSON+C* documents (JSON+C = JSON with comments). The implementation has *no
overhead and near-perfect performance*.

JSONMinify *makes it possible to use JSON+C everywhere* regular JSON is
expected--with a very cheap conversion. Actually, prepending JSONMinify will
even SPEED UP your JSON parser (if it's a slow one).

Usage is quite simple:

    String minified = prophecy.common.JSONMinify.minify(originalJSONString);

Note: We'll collect implementations in any other language too - just submit
if you have one.

Note note: I wrote JSONMinify because the other minifiers (notably, the one
at bigaqua.org <http://bigaqua.org/minify_json.html> which still turns out
high at Google), sadly, JUST DON'T WORK.

Looking for feedback... cheers and have a great summer!! :o))
