Hi, 
You maybe could use lists:flatten on your entry, do that you will always have a one level depth proplist.

But if the input is lists of proplists I need to iterate over all its elements. and look for key in each of them. I amnot sure how to distinguish lists vs. proplists. lists:is_list returns true for both of them.
