We haven't done any major improvements
on it for quite a long time. We're keeping it alive (is it
the same as "supporting"?) because it's in our repo
and some people are relying on it.

If I were to decide I would have removed jsonrpc from our
repos long time ago. But, fortunately, others keep me from
doing this.

We will have a better supported replacement at some point, but:
 a) it will do different things than what jsonrpc does
 b) it's hard to say when.

Right now it's _safe_ to use jsonrpc. We will keep it under
our wings until we have a replacement. We'll make an announcement
when that is no longer true.
