To fight that problem I want to proposed a new class in "collections" called odict which is a dict that keeps the items sorted, similar to a PHP array.
I'm also +1 on this. I've used the implementation you mentioned in a compiler project of mine and found it to be quite useful. It is hard for me to mention any other uses but there definitely are many occasions where people need them and either go for (key, value)-tuples or use some lib which does only provide this single data type. I am pretty optimistic that the addition will find its usecases, once it is in the stdlib.
