Patch submitted. It only implements 'if key in dict', not 'for key in dict'.
The latter is kind of hard until we have a separate iteration protocol.
(PEP, anyone ?) Once we have it, we could consider 'for key, value in dict',
which is now easily explained with 'dict.popitem()'.

Does this mean I get a legally sound and thus empty legal statement with
every Python release for the rest of your, its or my life, Guido, or will
you just make me 'Free Python Release Receiver For Life' ? :-)
