Yes, but what's strange is the (implicit) assumption that the  
#attributes dictionary is going to return an association rather than  
just the value.  This definitely needs to be fixed.  The reason it  
hasn't been yet is just that I've been hesitant to break code that  
(like the example Michel posted) relies on it being wrong.  I guess  
we should just suck it up and break it now.

BTW, Michel, I've been a bit busy and haven't been properly tracking  
the changes you've been making to support the VW port.  If you send  
me an email summarizing them I'll work to integrate them into the  
mainline (or will it be obvious enough if I just read through the  
commit logs?)
