To help prevent retrospective JSONEncoder overrides when failing to serialize a given object, the intention of this issue is to propose that the JSON encoder checks if a given object has a __json__ attribute, using that rather than raising a TypeError.

This will help in maintaining easier-to-follow code and keeps the responsibility of determining how an object should be represented in JSON objects firmly within the object itself.

The obj.__json__ callable/attribute should behave in the same way as __repr__ or __str__, for example.

I'm happy to look in to contributing this enhancement myself if that's preferred. Any pointers as to how I go about contributing are greatly appreciated.
