Hi there,
I am wondering whether JSON [RFC7159] support would be a helpful extension to the C++ standard library (pure library extension), including, but not limited to, the following aspects:
1. A variant-like container type (for this mail, let's call it "std::json") that combines C++ types for the JSON value types [RFC7159, chapter 3]:
- string (e.g. std::string),
- number (e.g., double or int64_t),
- boolean (e.g., bool),
- array (e.g., std::vector), and
- object (e.g., std::map).
