Indeed, the new ZnClient can do transparent encoding/decoding using the #contentReader: and #contentWriter: options, like this:

ZnClient new
	url: 'http://easy.t3-platform.net/rest/geo-ip';
	queryAt: 'address' put: '';
	accept: ZnMimeType applicationJson;
	contentReader: [ :entity | | parserClass |
		parserClass := Smalltalk at: #JSJsonParser ifAbsent: [ ^ self ].
		parserClass parse: entity contents ];
	ifFail: [ ^ self error: 'Oops' ];
If you set a #contentWriter: to convert Smalltalk to your representation, you can provide put/post data using #contents: with Smalltalk objects as arguments. The same can be done for XML, or any other (custom) encoding.
