No. You have to either make a list of key,value items and sort that,
possibly with a cmp or key parameter
items = d.items()
or write or find a sorted_dict class (Google may help). In most
applications, people find that they only need a sorted listing of a dict
occasionally, so they just use the fast builtin dict and the fast builtin
list sort when needed.
