JSON::PP was split out to allow it to be included in the Perl core on its own.
The JSON::backportPP is intended to be temporary to ensure that JSON
itself didn't break while the JSON::PP split was tested. I'm not sure
when MakaMaka intends to remove it, but he said he would do so once he
was confident that JSON was properly depending on JSON::PP.
