[New-bugs-announce] [issue12134] json.dump much slower than dumps

New submission from poq <poq at gmx.com>:

import json, timeit
obj = [[1,2,3]*10]*10
class writable(object):
	def write(self, buf): pass
w = writable()
print('dumps: %.3f' % timeit.timeit(lambda: json.dumps(obj), number=10000))
print('dump:  %.3f' % timeit.timeit(lambda: json.dump(obj,w), number=10000))

On my machine this outputs:
dumps: 0.391
dump:  4.501

I believe this is mostly caused by dump using JSONEncoder.iterencode without _one_shot=True, resulting in c_make_encoder not being used.
