I'm not talking about "representation" in the sense of "print format"
but in terms of which data-structure to use for them.  But yes, of
course that will affect the way they print.  Clearly, I'd hope that the
new representation would print `read'ably.

The way abbrev-tables print right now is just plain bad: it's neither
computer-readable nor human-readable.
