That's the second recommendation for something like this. The first was a dup of poll().

This one sounds more logical and sane to me. I can name the inner conversion methods what I want (and have them public), but the names won't matter as much, as the typical end user won't be using them directly.

Doing this with tpv() makes a great deal more sense, as it provides more flexibility, while allowing poll() to do the same thing it does (fetch the data, send it through the parser, and return it as original JSON or original Perl as originally designed).

Anonymonk's idea of hacking poll() was a good one so I don't want to take away from that, but it does make more sense to implement this in tpv() as that's where all of the relevant convertible data is housed), and that's what I think I'm going to do.

update:I appreciate those who actually have reached out and viewed the code. It's impressive to me that people do really care :) fwiw, the most recent changes that have been committed can be found in the repo.
