i don't see it as bloat*. it would be if done the simple way - by
duplicating the API in another controller. but there's a level on
which the serialisation and deserialisation of data should be
independent of the API logic and it would be nice to see the code
sure, anyone could set up a json mirror/proxy of the API or, just as
easily, set up an AMF mirror/proxy. maybe in the short term that's the
best way to provide legacy support for AMF?
*: but, of course, no-one ever sees their favourite features as bloat... :-)
