JSON or other data export

I have created a form the generates groups of data for part of it. Is
there an easy way to deal with that? Through the ODK Aggregate web site it
will only export CSV and that only includes a link to the group data.

When using the Briefcase, it exports a CSV containing the main data and
then IDs to the group data entries.

Has anyone created an way to just output JSON for that all to make it
easier to deal with in other applications and programs? I would rather not
re-invent the wheel and create a way to read in the CSV and match up the
group data IDs.

ODK Briefcase v1.0 produces a CSV for the main data and a CSV for each
repeat in the form, with keys cross-linking these rows.

We could certainly add an "Export to JSON" export mechanism to ODK
Aggregate (or ODK Briefcase).

If someone produces the code, I'll fold it into the build.
