Well, Python is essentially a superset of JSON, with string escape handling
being ever so slightly different, and using True instead of true, False
instead of false, and None instead of null.  YMMV, but I find it possible,
even probable, to write Python that is far easier to edit than JSON, and in
fact, I have used Python for configuration files that are only to be edited
by programmers or other technical types.
