Add new type to be able to return UUID types as JSON #897

When using SQLAlchemy over PostgreSQL, if there is a native UUID type you want returned as part of the payload and the output format is JSON, you get this error:

TypeError: UUID('fea602c9-bc4d-432a-ad57-74d88416c04b') is not JSON serializable

This ticket is to request the addition of a new type to the list of existing ones so that UUIDs can be either cast to str or its hexadecimal representation used instead. Excerpt of code of the SQLAlchemy class used when this was tested:

from uuid import uuid4
from sqlalchemy.dialects.postgresql import UUID
class Booking(Base):
    __tablename__ = 'booking'
    uuid = Column(UUID(as_uuid=True), nullable=False, index=True, unique=True,
        comment='Unique code used to test Zato')
