none, you'd have to do that separately.

If you're thinking JSON, then I think you'd want text, not binary. Maybe
you can make use of the repr()?
It wouldn't be hard to just right your own text renderer from scratch,
unless you need C speed. Python being python, I'd tend to see what your
to generate that.
Does JSON have a representation for n-d arrays? In my little work with
it, it looked pretty lame for arrays of number, so I'd be surprised.
