It appears like you are building script runner which uses a hash for the
execution information, with the scripts to be executed as the keys and the
values/options being passed to the script as values or nested arrays of
values. I wouldn't see any major issues with using JSON or YAML as the
storage format, however there may be requirements for this runner which
haven't been detailed yet.
