Property Tree is not capable of faithfully representing the data that
can be stored in a JSON file. For example:

* One can't discern, as a user, between vectors/arrays and maps/objects.

* It can't use key names with "." in the name.

And one discrepancy which could be addressed:

* It reinterprets some string data as non-string data (I'm referring to
the strings "true" & "false" being interpreted as the values true & false).
