I'm not sure how feasible this is without writing the code, but in lieu of
the dearth of high level array support (think of the mess of casting and
counting asterisks) perhaps it is feasible to save a function with the
array that can identify the "key" data in an array element, and sorting or
testing membership or perhaps other operations would use the same
mechanism.  I dunno.
