Yes, I get that.  Just want to point-out that working with heavily nested dictionaries (typical for JSON) is no fun with square brackets and quotation marks.

Yeah, I get that too. So maybe this should be limited to JSON? Could the stdlib json library be made to return objects that support this (maybe with an option)?

I replied in the issue, not noticing the discussion was happening here after getting interrupted with something else.

But I use my implementation (uploaded to the issue) for many things besides JSON. Such a feature is just too practical not to be Pythonic.
