Guido, thanks for the wisdom and clarity of your reasoning. I really
appreciate a positive attitude towards questioning not so obvious problems.
So far I was only attempting to verify whether this is related to
PEP-416 or not. If this is indeed related PEP 416, then I must obviously
attest that I must still understand why a immutable dict would prevent
this bug or not...
Either ways, I fail to see where this is OT or should be discussed on a
more obscur forum than python-dev. :-)
