[pypy-dev] dictionaries in RPython

What is the current attitude to dictionaries in RPython?  At one point
I thought the attitude was "constant dictionaries, constantly known
string-only keys" but in particular pypy.interpreter.argument isn't
even vaguely close to this measure.  This is what crashed
translate_pypy after about 110 minutes of CPU time :) -- there's an
assert that the item in aDict[some_item] is constant.

I think to cope effectively with argument.py the SomeDict annotation
needs quite a lot of work.
