[Python Edinburgh] JSON mapping library - recommendations?

I could... but I'm trying not to :)

I think I found what I was looking for: Linaro-python-json

<https://launchpad.net/linaro-python-json/>From the docs:

>>> class Person(IComplexJSONType):
...     def __init__(self, name):
...         self.name = name
...     def to_json(self):
...         return {'name': self.name}

Let's make a person instance:
>>> joe = Person('Joe')
>>> joe.name

We can now serialize this object using json.dumps() or any other json
module API. The only requirement is to pass our generic pluggable
encoder class:
>>> json.dumps(joe, cls=PluggableJSONEncoder, class_hint=None)
'{"name": "Joe"}'

I might have a play with it at some point to see whether it is a net gain.
It's certainly pretty similar to what I was thinking. Thanks for your
suggestions, guys.
