Nested objects are fully supported.  My JSON example was intended to
show this.  You thought that the JSON and dict stuff are completely
distinct, but they are not: JSON bits is just a serialization.

You can have dicts and arrays as values in arrays and dicts.  Heck,
this even allows you to have dicts and arrays as keys of dicts (which
JSON does not allow).

Nested objects are already fully supported, with even more power than
in in JS/JSON.
