But AFAICT json.py is the only one that supports "canonical json" (and even
that support is incomplete - there is no checker / strict decoder). Is there
any plan to move this "canonical" stuff into simplejson? I would like to
have it available for signature/crypto stuff - unless people think that I
should drop all json from signatures, instead using asn.1 and shoehorning
our signatures into PKCS7 format (in itself, not a bad fit; but to do the
whole job of PKCS7 implies supporting x.509, which is a standard everyone
uses but nobody likes).
