REST-style JSONP callback option

I'm trying to get cross-domain JSONP data from this API:

Unfortunately, the API is not standard in accepting a ?callback=foo parameter, but rather requires appending 'foo' to the URL:

I've tried to use jquery.getJSON, but the way of specifying a callback is restricted to the "url?callback=?" scheme. I would need just "url/?".

Proposal: to accommodate REST APIs, if the URL ends in '/?', getJSON should simply replace the '?' with the callback name.

You might wanna give jquery-jsonp a try:

Check the TipsAndTricks wiki page especially.
