I use the json module in 2.6 to communicate with a C# JSON library and a
consume the equivalent of str, not the equivalent of bytes.
Yes, the data eventually has to go over a socket as bytes, but that's often
handled by a different layer of code.
automatically figures out the encoding from the HTTP headers and/or other
information (defaulting to UTF-8) and returns a str-like object that I pass
For C#, I wrap the socket in a StreamReader object, which decodes the byte
stream into a string stream (similar to Python's new TextIOWrapper class).
Hope that helps,
