Yes, unfortunately you need to know what type of data
are being returned in each dictionary element, but if you
do it's extremely reliable.  bindata->size holds the
string length.  I've found that bindata strings do not
always have a terminal \0, so in the Python bindings I'm
doing string conversions using PyString_FromStringAndSize()
rather than just PyString_FromString().
