Im making a call to a Python function that returns a dictionary (string -> dictionary), i.e.

a= {}

a[blah]= { active: True }

The Java code seems a bit odd.  Heres the call to return the dict a:

         Map<PyObject,PyObject> status = (Map<PyObject,PyObject>)f.__call__(params);

And then I can iterate through the keys:

         Iterator i = status.keySet().iterator();

         while (i.hasNext())


            String key = (String)i.next();

            System.out.println("K "+key+" "+key.getClass());

I would expect K to be PyObject, but its String.  I would expect to write the Iterator as:

         Iterator<PyObject> i = status.keySet().iterator();

         while (i.hasNext())


            PyObject key = (PyObject)i.next();

So, whats Jython doing as its a little confusing!
