Just for S&G, and without checking the version numbers of anything, this 
may not be all that bulletproof a test:

gene@coyote:~$ echo '[1, 2, 3]' | json_xs -t null 2>/dev/null; echo $?
gene@coyote:~$ echo '[1; 2, 3]' | json_xs -t null 2>/dev/null; echo $?

Old, buntu 10.04.4 LTS system, all up to date security patches wise.  
kernal 3.13.9, PAE on a quad core phenom.

Interesting result.  Source of error? DamnedifIknow.
