Comment(by erikos):

 Looks like there is still a difference between simplejson and json
 (contained in Python itself), here the simplejson info:



     JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) <http://json.org> is a subset of
     JavaScript syntax (ECMA-262 3rd edition) used as a lightweight data
     interchange format.

     :mod:`simplejson` exposes an API familiar to users of the standard
     :mod:`marshal` and :mod:`pickle` modules. It is the externally
     version of the :mod:`json` library contained in Python 2.6, but
     compatibility with Python 2.4 and Python 2.5 and (currently) has
     significant performance advantages, even without using the optional C
     extension for speedups.

 In a follow up patch bd3fdd73a853d618aa5000ff5b1ce82f196c8b70 on
 cff9e43527ead20b088a9bfc6bbf12b0827debfd Daniel moved the shell at least
 back to simplejson.

 We should evaluate the situation now once again and then switch all the
 modules and activities to whatever is the state of art.
