Okay, I'll pull both of these in when I get a chance. I might
actually be able to use cjson to help with the logging I need to do in
the database and in the install phase.

After looking at cjson I could probably add support in a couple of
hours. Some things in my lib aren't finalized though, so I wouldn't
recommend spending time on it right now.

Before and during the summer it would have been pretty simple because
I was working on git and hg. At the end of the summer I decided to
move over to p4 until I have at least the entire current pkg system
supported (and then I'll probably move the project back over to a git
repo). Anyone can look at that and submit patches, but I don't want
to create a communal repository until I'm "finished" with the lib.
I'm in an... interesting... situation right now, I just moved and my
bsd machine has no way of getting on the internet. I do have some
pretty big changes in the pipeline that I haven't been able to commit
yet, though (namely logging in the database and some naming convention
changes), so go ahead and look, but I really wouldn't recommend
touching too much for a while because a lot of stuff might change.
