Embedded documents are just key/val maps of the same simple datatypes.
Data.Map would be sufficient to support documents, I have no idea what it
would take to support that in a Model definition though :)
Arrays in Mongo are the same map objects, but the upside is that we can
represent those within Persistent as lists.
I should probably learn how Persistent works, so I might take a whack at
adding that support. No promises though :)
