We should certainly look at applying the non-API-changing parts,
though.  I'm not sure what the best way is to represent these
structures on the Python side.

Thouis, you've thought about this a lot: could you tell us the pros
and cons of switching to the new representation?

I don't mind the tests changing, as long as the round-trip completes
successfully and all the data is still read.
