Offhand it doesn't seem like a super-appropriate tool.  Once you get
past the lexical details like quoting, the syntax of array literals
is not complicated enough to need a bison parser.  Also, the issues
you're facing now like enforcing consistent dimensions are not amenable
to solution by a context-free grammar --- so you'd still need most of
the dimension-checking mechanisms.

There might be something out there that is more useful, but I dunno
