Thanks Bill. So for creating a new hash-table, is there anything wrong with
doing the following, given that the call to max_atom_to_s7_obj is recursive
and could be making objects for a long time, if the Max dict is very deep:

    // turn off the GC in case the object tree we are making is very big
    s7_gc_on(s7, false);
    // max_atom_to_s7_obj will recurse for nested dicts and arrays, top
level will be a hash-table
    s7_value = max_atom_to_s7_obj(s7, ap);
    s7_gc_on(s7, true);

thanks again!
