Sure, why not. tilly originally mentioned a bitmap so I mentioned something cheaper in memory. You can build multi dimensional Judy arrays. In particular, JudyHS is implemented as a nested set of JudyL arrays. I've posted a snippet at Dump JudyHS which demos dumping a JudyHS structure.
It's explicitly required for this to work that Judy is nestable.
