      On the contrary, I think this is a very good idea. It's called
      "autovivification" in Perl, and is very convenient. It is particularly
      nice that the static type of the key determines what sort of JSON object
      to make.

      sober. And here am I, a better poet than Porson, and a better scholar
      than Wordsworth, somewhere betwixt and between. --A.E. Housman
