Throws parsing error for .json files #4

As Vim sets .json filetype to javascript automatically editing .json files throws a
Unexpected token : error.

This can be fixed by explicitly specifying the .json filetype and another linter in .vimrc with something like

au BufRead,BufNewFile *.json set filetype=json
let g:syntastic_json_checkers=['jsonlint']

If you use, Vim will already have filetype=json set and render JSON in a more readable, accurate way, though this doesn't solve this particular problem.

I'm not really sure what the solution to this is in terms of this project, though; I don't want to change peoples' filetype defaults if they install this plugin

I added a note to the repo. Closing this bug as it is somewhat out of scope for the project and I don't want to implement code that would meddle with others' configurations. If you come up with a smoother solution or I misunderstood the problem, feel free to reopen!
