How might I persuade Kombu to use simplejson instead of the json module?

Hi.

I’m attempting to get some eyes on:

In short, the URL is about how to convince kombu 3.0.37 to interoperate with kombu 5.2.4.

Kombu 3.0.37 wants to serialize with simplejson, which can serialize bytestrings. Kombu 5.2.4 wants to deserialize that data using the Python standard library’s ‘json’ module though, which does not understand bytestrings.

Traceback and more at the URL included above.

Thanks!

I posted an answer on SO.
