Dear all,

Given that

1. Python comes with "batteries included"

2. There is a standard library re-org happening because of Py3K

3. JSON is now a very commonly used format on the web

Is it time there was a JSON codec included in the python standard library?

(If XML is already supported, I see no reason why JSON shouldn't be)

Or is it best to make users who want to use JSON go and research all
of the different options available to them?

Choosing a Python JSON Translator

Just a thought.
