Parses STRING as JSON, returning a lua representation of the parsed JSON.

This json parsing implementation will accept C style block comments, C++ style single line comments and shell style single line comments. Comments will be treated as though they were spaces prior to being parsed by the underlying json parser.

This is logically the opposite of kumo.json_encode.
