    Is that json-rpc mixin / plugin publicly available? I must confess I haven’t checked the latest Merb itself or looked more than one page back through your blog, so I protest innocence if it’s obvious ;-) Thanks!

    You know, it isn’t, but I’ll push it out ASAP. I’m flying home from the east coast tomorrow, and I’ll test against latest merb when I’m back.
