Hi Vivien,

This sounds great even though I don't fully understand it :-) but I'm
starting to read a little bit about Solid (and Disfluid). While I was
reading I found this:

Both the header and the payload use the JSON representation from srfi-180:
objects are alists of symbols to values, arrays are vectors. It is
unfortunate that guile-json has a slightly different representation, where
alist keys are strings, but we hope that in the future SRFI-180 will be
more closely respected.

Unfortunately guile-json doesn't follow srfi-180 api (it was created much
sooner), but regarding alists' keys it can support both symbols and
strings. So you can do (scm->json '((foo . "bar"))) or (scm->json
'(("foo" . "bar"))) and both would work the same.

By the way, a long time ago I also worked on guile-jwt ( which is SUPER basic compared to
what you've done. I was planning to add JWK support at some point. I'm
wondering if we could take your code and merge it into guile-jwt so other
projects can use it. What do you think? Right now I don't have much time
but if you say it's fine I could work on it whenever I'm free.

Thank you!
