[docs] [issue10038] Returntype of json.loads() on strings

Fred L. Drake, Jr. <fdrake at acm.org> added the comment:

As I understand it, the decision to return str instead of unicode
values for the "simplejson" module was simply inherited by the
standard library.  As such, it still needs to be evaluated in the
context of the standard library, because of the incompatibility it
introduces.

I still maintain that it's a bug, and should be treated as such.
