By the way, the reporting done at

  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nst/JSONTestSuite/master/results/pruned_results.png

One can seemingly think that Python parser somehow pass those tests
(second and third line). In pratice, the result is disappointing:

In [1]: import json
In [2]: json.load(open('n_structure_100000_opening_arrays.json'))
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
RecursionError                            Traceback (most recent call last)
[...]
RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while decoding a JSON
array from a unicode string

In [3]: json.load(open('i_structure_500_nested_arrays.json'))
Out[3]: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
RecursionError                            Traceback (most recent call last)
[...]
RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object

The consequence of that behavior is that when you want to parse JSON
from an untrusted source (which is very likely when you expose a
service to the Internet), you need to wrap json.load inside try/except
(Python's guard). At least, that error does not happen with the parser
I am working on.
