Hello Duy!

Thanks for chiming in the conversation.

I am not sure about Gauche implementation [0].  I guess, it depends
how the PEG parser is implemented.

[0] https://github.com/shirok/Gauche/blob/master/lib/rfc/json.scm

I will extend the early draft to make it possible to implement Gauche interface.

In particular Gauche JSON module is not a streaming parser.  Streaming
parser are useful in contexts where JSON are very big, and you only
need a slice of it.  Example of such JSON include wikidata's JSON dump
[2].  I recognize that is not a very common use case to stream parse a
bigger than memory JSON.

I think the main advantage of the parser I am working on, is that it
is safer or at least wants to be safer.

Also, there is existing stream parser for JSON in various language, so
it is clearly something:

- https://www.npmjs.com/package/JSONStream
- https://github.com/AMDmi3/jsonslicer
- https://github.com/danielyule/naya
- https://github.com/zserge/jsmn

And the following has an interesting rationale for the use of streaming parser:
