Are you aware of:

Not sure if that helps at all.

IIRC, it looked like you were trying to declare a dictionary, composed of
arrays, that had elements, all in one go.

I was just looking at the syntax of the array declarations, and they didn't
strike me as "properly formed", but it was hard to puzzle out that little
snippet.

No worries - if what you have is working for you, then carry on!   :)
