    Log Message:
    So I was playing with serialized JSON data files (a replacement for the old logon.lst file format) and thought I came up with a cool new idea. Nope.
    It's already a thing:

    Here's a library to append-to and read these "JSON Lines", "NDJSON" and "LDJSON" files.

    On underscores versus dashes in filenames:
    Apparently my tendency is to use underscores in source/script filenames, while other CVS contributors (e.g. mcmlxxix) prefer dashes (e.g. json-*.js), so the filenames are starting to look a bit bipolar. Oh well. :-(
