Re: CIF-JSON draft 2017-05-15

I'd like to also hear from people interested in the issue of concatenation. Obviously CCDC doesn't do this properly for their own multi-structure CIF files. Providing an easy concatenation mechanism that does not require going in and changing data_ names is an added benefit of this idea.

Note that that idea just says that the very top level could be a serial array of CIF-JSON data. Again, a royal pain to figure out if there is no key information. But, perhaps Jmol is unique in its ability to decipher data types without fully reading the data. I don't know. Still, important for me....
