Hi all,

few days ago I thought about a way to rapresent sets and
ordered dicts using a json compatible syntax, these are my conclusions:

A set could be defined as { item1, item2, item3[...] }
    with {,} as an empty set

An ordered dict could be defined as [ item1: value1, item2: value2 ... ]
    with [:] ase an empty odered dict

It could be used inside python code or to serialize python structures in
a json-like format (pyson maybe ?).

What do you think about ?

  Kind regards, Matteo.
