> The Python Avro libraries don't actually have a proper JSON decoder or encoder, because
they don't handle the [type-hinting for unions|http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#json_encoding]
properly.
> The Python {{avro.io}} library should provide a pair of {{StrictJsonEncoder,StrictJsonDecoder}}}
classes that correctly include (and decode) the type hints when the schema expects a union.
> Jonathan Coveney [raised this concern|http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/avro-user/201304.mbox/%3CCAKne9Z6nkYXwb4QzPr4qNyH1o7TnL1674MspgnHuKMuD2imguQ%40mail.gmail.com%3E]
