[erlang-questions] JSON encoding of arrays of arrays

I'm surprised that people are finding it to be complicated. A list of
lists is literally an erlang list with erlang lists in it. It looks
like the documentation does need some improvement though, it's only
really obvious if you use it or if you read through the data types.

{struct, [{binary(), json_term()}]} is an object
[json_term()] is a list
binary() is a string
integer()/float() are number
true/false/null atoms map to the same terms in json.
