From_dataset() doesn't work with json datasets

A few months ago I reported an issue with from_dataset not working which was unresolved:

After studying some of @rich.bateman 's examples I noticed that all of them used a csv file as the referenced dataset. The referenced dataset I had used json. When I changed mine to csv, from_dataset() worked!

This limitation should be mentioned in the docs until it is resolved: Mockaroo - Random Data Generator and API Mocking Tool | JSON / CSV / SQL / Excel

Hi Mark @mockaroo,
is there any update on this if it is really true? I wasn’t able to get the from_dataset() function to work, even on the simpliest json datasets. Do you think you guys will be able to fix this?
