Ideally it would be nice not to have to store it as part of the
value. But that should work. Thank you.
I should have split my question clearly into two questions. Sorry for
dragging the off [python-dev] topic aspect of my question into this
The question I tried (poorly) to raise to this list is if a
get_key(key) -> key as I described could be added to dictionary in
future versions of python. I know at least one user that would use it
Thank you from a happy python user,
