      As I mentioned before, there are many well-known JSON serialization
formats, like:
- http://ubjson.org/
- http://cbor.io/
- http://msgpack.org/
- BSON (ok, let's skip that one hehehe)
- http://wiki.fasterxml.com/SmileFormatSpec
Ah, the great thing about standards is there are so many to choose from :-(

So I guess part of the GSoC project would have to be figuring out which
one of these would make the most sense for us to adopt.

And unless I'm mistaken, there's an int16 to identify the data format. Apart from the chosen format, others may be provided as an alternative using different data formats. Or alternatives (like compressed text json). Of course, this may be better suited for a next GSoC project, of course.
