Hi Niels,

Currently there is no way to specify the type of returned source code
block.  Hopefully one of Rainer or Rasmus' suggestions to this thread
should serve as a sufficient work around.

I would augment Rainer's solution changing it to the following...

#+begin_src sh :results scalar raw
  echo "#+begin_src json"
    curl https://our-service.org/getstuff?username=dirk\&password=catsbrithday\&fmt=json
  echo "#+end_src json"

which works for me -- or presumably would work for me if our-service
could getstfff for dirk with password catsbirthday.

Cheers -- Eric
