This is very cool, but it's not reproducible. If you published the
code that you used then it would help everyone out considerably. For
example, with simplejson 1.7.5 I'm unable to reproduce the problems
you're experiencing with
http://deron.meranda.us/python/comparing_json_modules/strings in Table
1 (other than UserString of course). I've tried this both on 32-bit
UCS-2 python (OS X) as well as 64-bit UCS4 python (x86-64 linux) and I
get correct output. I'm still looking through the rest of the tests,
so that might not be the only supposed problem that I'm unable to

I can certainly agree with that. The scope of the changes wouldn't be
that big though, at least for simplejson's default behavior (escape
everything to ASCII).
