Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:
Python-3000 discussion <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-
3000/2008-March/012753.html> did not reveal any opposition to the idea
of batch processing of dict displays. However, a compromise suggestion
was made to limit batches to 256 items
I don't think this type of micro-optimization belongs to the core. A
rare application that would benefit from limited size batch processing
can do so explicitly using dict.update.
See also relevant discussion at issue2292 (starting at msg65111).
I believe this issue can be reopen. I will submit documentation patch
if the change is accepted in principle.
