"""Clean an object to ensure it's safe to encode in JSON.
Atomic, immutable objects are returned unmodified. Sets and tuples are
converted to lists, lists are copied and dicts are also copied.
Note: dicts whose keys could cause collisions upon encoding (such as a dict
with both the number 1 and the string '1' as keys) will cause a ValueError
to be raised.
Parameters
----------
obj : any python object
Returns
-------
out : object
A version of the input which will not cause an encoding error when
encoded as JSON. Note that this function does not *encode* its inputs,
it simply sanitizes it so that there will be no encoding errors later.
Examples
--------
>>> json_clean(4)
4
>>> json_clean(range(10))
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
>>> json_clean(dict(x=1, y=2))
{'y': 2, 'x': 1}
>>> json_clean(dict(x=1, y=2, z=[1,2,3]))
{'y': 2, 'x': 1, 'z': [1, 2, 3]}
>>> json_clean(True)
