Allow control over json.dumps keyword arguments in JsonResponse

Currently JsonResponse's only allows changing the JSON encoder class. It would be helpful to allow some/all of the arguments to json.dumps .

In my case I've had the need to set indent=2, to get a more readable output, and separators=(',', ':') to get the most compact output possible. Having control over allow_nan or skipkeys could also be useful for some.

A partial workaround for this is to create a custom encoder class that sets the desired values for indent and separators, this won't work as well for other kwargs as there are defaults set in dumps.

Maybe it would make sense to add a parameter: json_dumps_options=None which could be a dictionary of options.

Going to add parameter which would take in dictionary and pass kwargs as suggested by timgraham.
