I have had a look at doing something like this with the json_get functions. The trouble

string literals come in as unknown rather than as text, which makes things fairly ugly.
If we force people to cast path elements to text then I think the cure is worse than the
disease. I think the best we can do here is possibly to provide json_get and
json_get_text taking either a single int or variadic text, and json_get_path and
json_get_path_text taking non-variadic text.
Why not also one taking a single text?
Those aren't differentiable by their argument types. Why should json be
able to claim that namespace and not other datatypes?
Well, of course the calls would be

about the naming of the functions.
To answer David's point, there is no point in having both
get(json, variadic text)
since the second can encompass the first, and having both would make
