What I would do for JSAN to be all it could have been :-/

One of the things I found building up the PlaceSteal magical library was I needed an actual build/compilation step for turning the various external Javascript libraries I had in to one that would happily go through the Google compiler.

This included a whole bunch of hand-added patches for - for example - moving object-key specification in to one of dot notation or []notation. There were also a bunch of random patches to make things do what I wanted them to do, that didn't seem to be easily done via subclassing or poking around on the insides.

I'm pretty worried about the consequences when I have to upgrade one of the constituent libraries.
