Orca uses the JSON implementation from Python's standard library; it
does not use python2-json-py.
python2-json-py shadows the json module from Python's standard library,
causing this version of orca to fail.
E.G., /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/ contains
the line
from json import load,
but python2-json-py provides no load function.

Steps to reproduce:
Try to start orca. You'll get a traceback like this one:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/", line 526, in <module>
from settings_manager import SettingsManager
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/", line 33, in <module>
from json import load
ImportError: cannot import name load
