But most of those fixes were for old versions when the messaging
protocol / dictionary was based out of handcrafted payload.

Also you have fixed the dict casting problems reported by you in #397

3.1.x onwards GlusterFS uses RPC, i think that would that make it more

We might need a test machine to figure that out, or there are other
modules which have similar bugs reported in #397
