Fast deserialization in Python

All stan­dard YMMV dis­claimers apply.
Update (20090324−2): Accord­ing to John Mil­likin, the author of json­lib, cjson is buggy and unmain­tained. I will eval­u­ate fur­ther and post a fol­lowup blog entry. My dis­cus­sion with Dan Pascu, the author of cjson, cor­rob­o­rates these claims. I urge read­ers to read John Millikin’s com­ment.
Sum­mary:
For quickly dese­ri­al­iz­ing data in Python, use cjson.
