Actually the defaultdict is just simple wrapper around existing functionality of the __missing__ method. We can add the __transform__ method directly in the dict class. I think it will significant (2-3x) decrease a size of needed C code (no need in defining new type with constructors/destructors/etc, only lookup_transform).
Right now I am not proposing any C implementation of TransformDict. That could be added, but it's not what I'm pushing for here :-)
But I don't think the "type generator" API would be easier to implement in C, anyway.
