Can the root level of the OSW be entered as an array? It looks like not but this would be useful for doing parametrics with different weather files and different seed files when using the CLI.

I think I've seen a seed file measure and a weather file measure but I also think I tried them and they crashed and I didn't have time to debug. Having an array for seed and weather seems a more straightforward/intuitive way to handle this.

@Determinant have you looked at the OSW structure documentation?

You need to be cautious if you just change the weather file, as it doesn't alter the design days, the water main temps, or the ASHRAE climate zone. The climate zone is only important if you run measures that set constructions or other characteristics based on climate zone

Thanks @David Goldwasser, For what I usually do those aren't critical, but, they might be at some point. The main hurdle would be the weather files and seed files.
