I'm tempted to crowdfund a time machine to go back to make JS and JSON allow trailng commas in lists and dicts. Boost if you'd contribute.

@liw I would do the same, but to travel back in time and convince @BrendanEich that Javascript was a bad idea altogether, and he should focus on more wortthy activities.

Like surfing or scuba diving.
You can't write Javascript in the water. (For now)

@liw Will your time machine be under the JSON license, so it can only be used for Good, not Evil?

@bremner The JSON licence is another thing that I could fix, with a time machine.
