Okay, but did your old language have a) parsers in dozens of programming languages? b) transformation languages that could map between your name/value pairs and other people's? c) a schema language for defining the allowed contents of the name/value pairs? d) support for deeply hierarchical and linked values? If you don't need these features then I think that there would be no shame in going back to what you were using before. Just be clear on what you would be giving up.
