The name "JSON.stringify" seems a little too "Web 2.0" cool to me. Is
there any reason a more usual and serious sounding option like
"serialize" was not used? Both are nine characters. I think there is a
marketing issue here elevating JavaScript from a "toy language".
Although that concept has been decreasing there is no need to
encourage it.
