Yes. But I think this should only be used for compatibility in a
transition period. In the long run one should agree on well defined
complex types with other projects for interoperability (via
freedesktop.org). Example for this reasoning: a tool from the X camp might
want to tell kdesktop to have a green background color. Speaking
proprietary binary protocols doesn't help with integration.
