I agree with Łukasz, it's more clutter than is worth for what amounts to: fallbackdict = lambda c, **kwargs: defaultdict(lambda c, **kwargs)

I will note, however, that almost all my use cases are with factories, primarily list set or int, and it was only this week that I first needed something else!
