Storing objects in dictionary

I am actually trying to store a FieldStorage object (which contains values of a post) into the session for later use. Something like session['data'] = data. I don't have the error message right now but something like "object cannot be set".

One is the session object (which is just a dictionary) and one is a FieldStorage object (I think it is a class but displays as a dictionary). My question is what is the requirement for an object to be able to store it in a dictionary? I am sure there is documentaion somewehre but I couldn't find it.
Are you trying to use the session object as a key in the dictionary or a 
value of a key?  What error are you getting?  You should be able to put 
anything into a dictionary (AFAIK) as a key, but only hashable objects 
can be put in as keys.
