DESCRIPTION
     The prop_dictionary_util family of functions are provided to make getting
     and setting values in dictionaries more convenient in some applications.

     The getters check the type of the returned object and, in some cases,
     also ensure that the returned value is within the range implied by the
     getter's value type.

     The setters handle object creation and release for the caller.

     If the sizep argument to prop_dictionary_get_data() is not NULL, then it
     will be set to the size of the returned data.

     The prop_dictionary_get_data() and prop_dictionary_set_data_nocopy()
     functions do not copy the data that is set or returned.  See prop_data(3)
     for more information.

     The prop_dictionary_get_string() and prop_dictionary_set_string_nocopy()
     functions do not copy the string that is set or returned.  See
     prop_string(3) for more information.

     The prop_dictionary_set_and_rel() function adds the object to the
     dictionary and releases it.  The object is always released, even if
     adding it to the dictionary fails.

RETURN VALUES
     The prop_dictionary_util getter functions return true if the object
     exists in the dictionary and the value is in-range, or false otherwise.

     The prop_dictionary_util setter functions return true if creating the
     object and storing it in the dictionary is successful, or false
     otherwise.
