Simply an inspiration - the underlying implementation should be as
fast and flexible as possible w/o being held back by existing APIs
(which can always be layered on top if desired).

It's just how much state the parser uses keep track of things like
nested arrays or JSON objects.  Noggit currently uses 1 byte for each
nested object/array.
Consider the amount of extra memory some parsers may use parsing something like
Nice to know the max overhead from a denial-of-service point of view too.
