Comment (by hodgestar):

 The io.savemat documentation says:

   Save a dictionary of names and arrays into the MATLAB-style .mat file.

 Since the value of 'd' (`{1: 2}`) cannot be converted to an array by
 numpy.asanyarray, the TypeError raised seems reasonable. Running

 >>> io.savemat('test', {'d':[1, 2]}, format='5')
 >>> io.loadmat('test')
 {'d': array([1, 2]), '__version__': '1.0', '__header__': 'MATLAB 5.0 MAT-
 file Platform: posix, Created on: Sat Nov 29 12:09:36 2008',
 '__globals__': []}

 completes without errors and seems to return a reasonable result.

 Unless there is something I'm missing here, I think this can be closed.
