it's quite easy to add the hooks to the metatable, try something like
this, where 'obj' is any 'DICT' object.  usually all objects share the
same metatable, so you just have to do this once and every DICT object
should get the new behaviour.

local mt = getmetatable(obj)
mt.__index = mt.get
mt.__newindex = mt.set
