[Laszlo-dev] JSON RPC

I suspect there are going to be performance problems with JSON in
Flash -- esp if it's parsed by script, rather than eval'ed.
Performance of data loading in Flash is critically important, obviously.
I'd suggest taking a look into AMF as a possible Flash-specific
transport that is more general and better supported than our
dataswfs. It is binary, yes, but that has its advantages. We could
use this when delivering RPC data to Flash, and JSON when delivering
such data to DHTML.
We'd want to hide this mechanism from the developer, completely.
