A tuple of an array of tuples seems less than elegant  Why not just a
tuple of tuples? Is scanning through a tuple significantly slower than
scanning an array?

As far as formats go, this is a new one to me. Most projects I
interact with seem to use either mochijson or mochijson2. I'd love for
there to be a canonical one though.
