Is there a function exposed by ESRI's python geoprocessor that converts the JSON format used in the various web clients to a valid feature class.

Clearly, the function exists because something is converting these JSON strings into a format usable by the geoprocessor. I can't find it anywhere.

If you have the json data to parse with python, you could grab the lat/longs and use an insert cursor and the writing geometry object found here http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgiSDEsktop/9.3/index.cfm?TopicName=Writing_geometries

No, there's no built-function to do this.
