Hi Adrien,

I've talked with upstream about your patch, here is his answer:

> I know of it, but unfortunately it brings more problems than it solves. It
> doubles the space requirements for decoding a JSON string, because it
> allocates a second buffer to do a pre parsing, with the only purpose of
> changing the solidus. This also increases significantly the time required to
> decode a JSON string as it parses it twice, almost halving the decoder
> performance.
> The correct fix it to modify the parser to take into account the solidus, so
> that it can all be done in 1 stage with only 1 buffer.

While I appreciate your work, I can't apply this patch unfortunately.
