I do not, but I see that YAJL <http://lloyd.github.com/yajl/> is now in 
Fedora, and has a BSDish license, so maybe that's a good place to start. 
Maybe someone would like to try designing an API which could sit atop 
that. Then we would not need to speculate based on principle.

I'd rather we use a library we can pull in like libxml than have to 
import the source and have to keep in sync with the upstream.
