Is there a JSON-based api for object storage planned in future?

Object Storage

One of the primary reasons I use DigitalOcean is that it has a simple, JSON-based API. I'm interested in using Spaces, but I'd really rather work with a nicer non-XML based API. Is a simple wrapper API (in the style of the other APIs) planned in future?

When we developed Spaces, our initial focus for the API was to ensure that it was inter-operable with the S3 API so that users could continue using the same libraries and tools that they're already comfortable with. We definitely recognize that the Spaces API as intuitive as our others.
