Heka JSON Decoder using a SandboxDecoder and Lua

First let me say if you're looking for help on Heka, check out their IRC channel. It's full of great guys that are extremely helpful! [IRC: #heka on irc.mozilla.org]

This Heka JSON encoder converts any simple key/value JSON payload into Heka fields.

// sample json payload
[{"name"=>"John Doe","title"=>"Sysadmin","@timestamp"=>"2014-09-02T22:10:28Z"}]

I hope to have a sample use case where we used this with a PHP application to import data into ElasticSearch. Pretty cool stuff - and super easy to setup with new and (in our case) legacy systems.
