I mostly wrote CJSON as part of another project last year when the
JSON options appeared to be a bit more limited. Hence I haven't
specifically tested Lua YAJL.

However, an unfair extrapolation of the JsonModules wiki suggests:
- CJSON should provide 2x decoding, 5x encoding performance.
- Lua YAJL has a streaming interface (CJSON doesn't).
- CJSON has options to handle sparse arrays safely.
- CJSON doesn't have any external dependencies other than Lua.

I'm sure there is more to it than that - I'd recommend testing them
yourself to be sure. JSON performance can vary widely based depending
on the input and the implementation.
