Thanks for the link Will. The idea behind baking in JSON support is to make
it easy for people with existing "libraries" of RESTful services to be able
to quickly wire up a JavaFX GUI, and make a potential transition from
HTML/HTML5 to JavaFX as easy as possible.  It's a powerful when you can
take an HTML UI and quickly put together the JavaFX equivalent and reuse as
much of your existing codebase as possible.
