Hi Scott, List,

The script I posted yesterday doesn't work, and I am a
bit lost. What libraries are being used for reading/writing those?

As far as I can see, oddities are

 - the lease files that work are not strictly JSON, according to the
strict Perl JSON parser and jsonlint
 - it must be sorted for the activation to work
 - it is wrapped like [1, $data]
 - the reader seems sensitive to whitespace and perhaps \n-encoded newlines

does anyone know more about these?
