What is new for packagers

sugar: cjson -> simplejson: Sugar moved back to use simplejson instead of cjson. cjson has a big bug dealing with slashes, this is a significant long-term bug and upstream has not been responsive other than acknowledging it. This bug breaks journal entry bundles #1553.

sugar-toolkit: the python module dateutil has been added. Please add this to the requires (i.e. in Fedora python-dateutil).
