For the latter, the goal is to identify if there's a reason to
library for more than just it's API compatibility with newer versions of
python 3. For simplejson, I know that it is faster than the stdlib json
library. It may also have additional API; the stdlib has not pulled the
changes from simplejson back into itself (and, iirc, is now best
considered a fork of simplejson rather than just a copy).
Of course, digging into details about particular libraries would be
needed. With simplejson, it's complicated .
Also, be careful about how you phrase your requests to upstream to
your changes. We don't want to annoy upstreams with requests to use
python3 stdlib modules when the backport works just as well for their
code for now as too much of that will turn upstream off of python3
