Yes. I'd love to have a mostly Core compatible JSON-RPC frontend. Most of
my current users are happy using it as a library though. A lot of popular
languages can run directly on the JVM these days. The big ones we miss are
C++ and PHP, I think. But you can use JavaScript, Python 2.7, Lisp, Ruby,
along with other less well known ones.

The other good reason to have JSON-RPC support would be to reuse the Core
regression tests.

Anyway, this is off topic :)
