[thelist] JSON and Client-side classes

Greetings all,

I've been playing around with JSON and I can't seem to find the  
answer to the following:

Lets say you have a JS include that defines an object such as

PersonObject = function() {
	this.name = '';
	this.age = '';

Is it possible, via JSON, to eval a string such that it would create  
a new instance of a person object? A bonus would be a way of doing it  
without creating an incredibly large, and obscene, constructor.

Thanks in advance,
