Ah right, yes that makes perfect sense.

What if the date were to be serialized as "new Date(...)"?

For example,

var input = new String("{ dob:new Date(1220453756681+0100) }");
var evaluated = input.evalJSON();

var v1 = evaluated.dob.toString();
// v1 ==> "Wed Sep 03 2008 15:55:56 GMT+0100 (GMT Daylight Time)"
var v2 = evaluated.dob.getDay();
// v2 ==> 3

Would there be any nasty pitfalls with this approach?
