Isn't this a good time to start over and do it right?
I think the JSON driver constitutes starting over and doing it right.
The SHM driver probably has way too big an installed base to do anything

I agree, the SHM can only be facelifted a bit with improved security/access rules, but I'd much prefer a structured interface like JSON for the future.
