    related to Store JSON data natively


    Represent JSON data as an external OR internal data source that can be wired up to the relationship graph--allowing them to work like document-style TOs to which layout objects such as fields and portals can be bound.


    1. Add a new type of data source that is accessible via Manage Database...; currently we can create "Tables", add the ability to create "Document" as a JSON type.
    2. Include the ability to create JSON "fields"--string, arrays, etc.
      1. the UI can be similar to that of "Tables", arrays would work like repeating fields but with additional properties, e.g. size (repetitions) that can be optionally set
