New submission from Brett Cannon:

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.
