[bioontology-support] REST services - JSON

We will likely be adding a parameter for output format in the next 
major version of the REST api. However, for the time being you could 
try a prototype JSONP service we've set up. We won't be supporting this 
service and can't guarantee it will work long-term, but you are welcome 
to try it and see if it fits your needs.

- apikey={your api key}
- path={encoded path on the BioPortal REST service (does not work for 
Annotator or Resource Index). "path" is everything after "bioportal" in 
the REST url For example: 
"" becomes 
- callback={optional. name of function for use with JSONP}
