Thank you both for the comments.

I must admit that I got kind of lost and I ended up not knowing if you
had any specific suggestions for guile-json. It is my very first guile
(scheme) package and I am pretty new to scheme.

>From what I understood, the main concerns were:

1. Hash tables might not be a proper way to represent JSON objects.

2. Syntax for accessing JSON objects.

For 1, as Taylan mentioned, clearly says that JSON objects
are unordered. So I thought a hash table was the right data structure
to use. I initially thought about using association lists, but that's
ordered and performance might be worst for large objects.

May be it would be better to have a json-object type and procedures to
access it (json-object-ref ...) and internally it could be a hash
table, or an alist. Then, maybe, the user could specify if he wants to
get ordered json-objects or not, and internally use hash tables or

For 2, yes, a better syntax would be ideal. I don't know about
SRFI-105, but I'll take a look into it.
