In issue #29540 there was a suggestion to add a `compact` argument to json.dump() and json.dumps(). That was eventually rejected as adding complexity to an API that's already messy.

But in GH-72 someone created a COMPACT constant to the json module which gets a similar effect as a `compact` argument but without expanding any APIs. Unfortunately I think the constant proposal got lost in discussion of adding the `compact` argument, so I'm opening a new issue to make a final decision as to whether we should accept/reject the COMPACT constant idea.
