I don't see how this follows, when this discussion clearly established
that native JSON parsing is much faster than parsing in Lisp.

I also don't see where did "a lot of time" come from, I think it's an
exaggeration, given the processing speed shown by benchmarks in this

There's still some peculiar slowdown in your configuration, which
AFAIR couldn't be reproduced from "emacs -Q"; I still hope you will be
able to find what causes that.

As for the more general point: we always decode strings, even in UTF-8
locales, so I don't see how this case is different.
