[et-mgmt-tools] passing list/dictionary in ksmeta

Hey people,
I am trying to use the ksmeta="" construct to pass a list of
dictionaries through to the kickstart file where I am using a cheetah
"#for $var in $vars" loop to unravel them.
Is this possible?
PS this is what I am trying to do;
cobbler profile edit --name=RHEL44-ORACLE10G-i386 --ksmeta="nics=[{
'dev': 'eth0', 'bootproto': 'dhcp'},{ 'dev': 'eth1', 'bootproto':
and the kickstart file has the following snippet in it;
#for $nic in $nics
$nic_string = "network"
#for $key, $value in $nic.items()
$nic_string = $nic_string + " --%s %s" % ( $key, $value )
#end for
#end for
