What I overlooked was the fact that you have to define an acces method (as
Alec Mitchell pointed out) for the fields in the dictionaries and use that
as fieldnames in the indexes. Stupid of me, basic OOP, but I didn't know I
could use methods as fields for the indexes.

I have it now perfectly working.
