help with guile-json inconsistencies

Hi guilers,

a new guile-json issue came to me recently:

I don't really have a solution yet on how to solve this, so I would
love some advice. The issue is that one can do:

  (scm->json '(1 2 3)) which returns [1,2,3]

however, if you do:

  (scm->json '((1 2 3)) it returns {"1":[2,3]} but one would probably
expect [[1,2,3]]
  (scm->json '((1 2 3) (4 5 6)) it returns {"1":[2,3], "4":[5,6]} but
one would probably expect [[1,2,3], [4,5,6]]

I guess the first question is, does everyone else feel the same way
about the return value?

The problem is that there's a function that checks if something is an
alist by basically checking if it's a pair? recursively and if so, it
builds a json object.

In the past, guile-json had a macro (json) which allowed you to do
(json (array (array...))) but I just realized it has exactly the same
problem. But may be there's some way to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated!
