Description (last modified by Gabriel Hurley)

http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/serialization/ covers how to serialize certain data, namely QuerySets and other model-based data, but it does not appear to contain or cross-reference how one would use the "bare" json module and json.dumps (not serializers.get_serializer('json')()-created objects) to serialize a basic concoction of one or more strings, numbers, hashes, and lists.

In terms of "information scent", the page is a natural search result for django serialization which people could find if they are looking how to serialize JSON-like data for Ajax use. Ideally that page should cross-reference, or possibly contain, how to do basic serialization to JSON for constructions from strings/numbers/hashes/lists, particularly as what you get from serializers.get_serializer('json')() has an allergic response to being asked to serialize non-iterable data.

A brief explanation and an example would be helpful, since this is a natural place for people to look for this type of information.
