Hi,

> But does it allow any bencoded value? such as lists and dictionaries?

No, i'm only accepting int/strings

http://bittorrent.org/Draft_DHT_protocol.html#example_packets
 | Every message has a key "t" with a single character string value
 | representing a transaction ID. 

It's clear that 't' has to be a string (accepting int is 'nice') but
it's unclear how long a 'single character string' is ;-)
