In fiona.open(), can I pass a namedtuple into schema, rather than a dict?

Named schemas are a little more lightweight and seem well-suited to the purpose of the schema dict.

No, namedtuples aren't supported. fiona.open() only accepts a dict or ordered dict. We're switching from dicts to custom classes in several other places in Fiona, but haven't made plans to do so for the schema.
