	So - it seems that (good of no-one to reply helpfully) that in fact you
can marshal mixed types in a dict - simply because you get to write your
own marshaller/de-marshaller for virtually everything; so there are few
constraints here; indeed I guess you can marshal a struct easily - you
just get to write a load of types to the wire by hand one by one.
