I don't need a format to share or store the data. I'm perfectly content
to pickle the class instance for storage purposes since I don't need to
share with anything that wouldn't understand the pickled class instance.

I'm looking for pointers on design. I'm inexperienced but cautious and
am mostly wondering if there's an easier way to "format" this data or if
this approach will lead to problems.
