So simplejson is going to be added to the stdlib (this came down from up high, which is why there has not been more of a discussion here). That means we need to choose a name. Obviously 'json' would work, but I am not sure if there is something better. Remember, we want simple so that if someone goes, "I wonder if Python has a JSON module", they can easily find it (which means no crazy package names).
+1 for "json" or "jsonlib". Simple is better.
+1 for json. Let's not have yet another xxxlib format name...
While that would be nice, I'm sure there a quite a few apps out there that already ship their own little version of a JSON library using that name. "jsonlib" already has an implementation:
BTW: What's bad about "simplejson" ?
Longer than it needs to be.
Oh, how I wished Python would finally get to use single package name for its std lib and put everything else under that name, e.g. "py". Then we could just name it "py.json" and be done with these issues once and for all.
If you want to convince Guido to allow this then that's fine; I'm +0 on the idea myself.
In my experience, Guido has shown that he doesn't get convinced by someone pointing him at a problem - he has to run into the problem himself.
Now, Python is a community project and its user set is very diverse, so I'd like to see what the community thinks. If there's a tie, Guido can break it, but I don't really see why he should be the only one who's being asked.
