Eric, here is the code that confirms changed behavior under trace function for both Python 2 and 3 - http://bugs.python.org/file15081/localstest.py

I agree that the documentation fix is necessary, and if you say that it is an easier sell - I tend to believe you. But with this fix the issue is still not fully covered, so it is interesting to know what builds up to the cost of renaming if we come to some common point about the type of this 'dict' from the user point of view.
