New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

The documentation for dict() (for both the built-in function and the class constructor) should display multiple signatures as do dict.__doc__ and the documentation for, say, str().

Currently, the dict() documentation just has one signature:


Something more in line with the docstring would be better, for example:
