The "Fortran library" http://bigdft.org/Wiki/index.php?title=Fortran_library appears to have some of what you want. I have not tried the code.

"The flib library provides an object called dictionary which is -- strictly speaking -- more than just a dictionary. It is polymorphic and can be a list or a dictionary, as in the python language. The other difference is that it keeps the order of the elements, which is very useful if we want to dump its contents to the yaml output. It represents indeed a tree of data, and for these reasons it will most likely change name into f_tree in a future release of the module.

These dictionaries are also used in the other parts of the flib library and are thus essential for its proper use. There are many examples in the file dicts.f90."
