I'm not a huge fan. Sure, dicts are ordered now, but I doubt that many people use that feature. I honestly still think of them as unordered ;)

I've seen several people say this so I'll be a voice on the other side: I am not a pro developer so my practices should probably not  be weighted all that much. But nevertheless, I have been constantly relying on order-ness in regular dicts ever since it was non-official thing in cpython. I actually did a little happy dance in my chair when RH announced this at pycon years ago.

I am sure I am not the only one.

Perhaps I'm wrong about that. However, I would still like things relying on ordered dictionaries to be implemented in OrderedDict first. I might be alone in this opinion, though.
