Since you seem to be using Django are you sure that isn't built in?

I use Turbo Gears and JSON is a standard feature turned on by
an option in a method. Django is quite similar to TG in most respects
so I'll be surprised if it can't do JSON directly.

If its on the Django web site and you are using Django then
probably! :-)

It certainly looks like a recommendation to me.
