I have a related question:  I am trying to send a dictionary
of type "a{ss}" (string->string dictionary) and cannot figure
out how to get the values in and out for my server.  Any help
or doc pointers to similar code is greatly appreciated.  Best regards,

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for lunch.
