JSON support

Description

This task is a meta-task for "JSON support". Details are in the linked tasks.

Assorted thoughts:

  • MySQL-5.7 has JSON support in the above sense

  • Facebook has a DocStore-patch implementing JSON support in the above sense, which is incompatible with MySQL-5.7 implementation

  • We have Dynamic columns that can be used as a backing store for the JSON data (when is done)

  • Pluggable data types (MDEV-4912) might help here

  • There's an SQL standard early draft related to JSON support in SQL
