JSON does not correctly encode dbus.Byte from dbus-python on 2.7:

dbus.Byte is a subclass of int with its own __str__ implementation.

>>> import json
>>> import dbus
>>> json.dumps(dbus.Byte(0))

On 3.x:

>>> import json
>>> import dbus
>>> json.dumps(dbus.Byte(0))

This seems to have been fixed in 3.x here:
and subsequently:

I'm interested in backporting these but they are marked as enhancements.  However a backport for a similar issue:

was accepted.  Would the maintainers be amenable to a backport of 18264 & 26719?

Python 2 is EOL, so I think this issue should be closed.
