But maybe if you call your module Safe, it is; Yosjon.Safe.of_string. After all insecurity is only a feeling. It's hilarious.  

Frankly simply don't use the wrong tools; I don't claim there are no bugs in jsonm but at least it doesn't try to be insecure by design. I think that if you are implementing security infrastructure you should be careful about these details; as far as I'm concerned not doing so casts some doubts on your ability to actually implement these things.
