This is probably a FAQ, but I dare to ask it nevertheless since I
haven't found a satisfying answer yet: Why isn't there an "ordered
dictionary" class at least in the standard list? Time and again I am
missing that feature. Maybe there is something wrong with my programming
style, but I rather think it is generally useful.
I fully agree with the following posting where somebody complains why so
very basic and useful things are not part of the standard library:
Are there plans to get it into the standard lib sometime?
