And you were right! This is not seen as as a valid dictionary (nor is it
seen as a string):

stuff = container.externalmethod(feedurl=feedurl)
test = same_type(stuff, {})
print test
return printed

returns "0"

However, interestingly enough, if I copy and paste the all the text that
is returned by the external method into the script, I am able to confirm
that it is a dictionary:

stuff= {'lastbuilddate': u'Mon, 24 Jul 2006 12:06:18 EDT', u'subtitle': 'U.S.',
u'generator': 'NPR/RSS Generator 2.0 etc...'}

In this case you are using the Python syntax to create a dictionary, so it's not a surprise when it *is* a dictionary...

Are you sure that your external method returns this *text*? It seems that you are looking at the string representation of some dictionary-like object. You can convert any dictionary-like object into a true dictionary using the builtin function dict:

  d = dict(an_object_that_acts_like_a_dictionary)
