I haven't had a good look at your code yet, but let me comment on this
one anyway.
280 lines is long. Take any big project, Linux kernel
(http://lxr.linux.no/linux), Wine (http://source.winehq.org), or an
large PHP project, for example Drupal, and you'll probably only find a
few functions that long.

Why are you setting the error handler then? Are you trying to override
an error handler set by other scripts?

The mailing list probably removed it. You should never send
attachments to a mailing list, instead host them somewhere on the web
and link to it.

Note that OOP is not always the best way to go. Haven't taken a close
look at the source so can't comment.

Putting it on github makes it easier for people to have a look at your
code before deciding on using it or not. If you're only putting it
there, you don't have to worry about forks because they don't have
anything to do with your repo, that's up to the people who fork it.
Putting it on github will increase the popularity, and will probably
also make developers want to 'upgrade'  your code. It's up to you.

A few other comments:
- Maybe you should think about another name? rajmv.. is not easy to remember.
- You're formatting is confusing, for example function names. They
start with lowerCamelCase, and then you go on underscore_formatting..
- in json_encode_*, there's probably a better way to write
if (
$c == ' ' ||
$c == '"' ||
$c == "'" ||
you could use in_array with a predefined array for example.
- Why do you have atleast 4 large encode functions? If you really need
4 different, then you might want to think about moving shared code to
sub functions and call them instead of duplicating so much code
(especially the large if statements look ugly being duplicated 4
- If you want people to comment on code, please be so kind to remove
any unused commented code.

Hope this helps,
