Hi Michael, glancing over the source history it appears as if _codecs.lookup_error has been disabled under Silverlight forever and is not a regression from IronPython 2.0.  That said, it might turn out this falls under the umbrella of http://ironpython.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=17383, and is something we can address for 2.6.1.

Any chance the _codecs issue I mentioned is fixed in Release Candidate 
3? It blocks me using the standard library json module (simplejson) in 
Silverlight so is a major PITA.
