Yes, if you want to insert a key you have to specify the key name as string if it isn't already. Unfortunately it doesn't work automatically with the hash table.
This is especially annoying when you want to add keys and values dynamically from an INI for example. You have to tell the hash if it's a value, string or float. Otherwise it will remain 0.
This is one of the major quirks I see with hash tables, which are otherwise very useful. Unless I'm overlooking something obvious or there's a good reason it works the way it does... at least I can't think of one.
