Maybe call it ejabberd_auth_json instead of mod_auth_json.

You can base it in ejabberd_auth_external (or other ejabberd_auth_*
file). Change the code that performs extauth calls with new code that
calls json, xmlrpc...

You can find example ejabberd_auth_* in the ejabberd code itself.
I didn't find any more in http://www.ejabberd.im/contributions

If you want example code to perform XML-RPC calls, there is an Erlang
library for that.
ejabberd_xmlrpc uses the library to implement an XML-RPC server, and
its documentation mentions how to perform XML-RPC calls using that
