Mm, interesting.  I must've missed this post in the busy days after
the conference. :-(

Two observations:

- Your benchmarks use an almost empty dict (for locals and globals at
  least).  I'd like to see how they perform with a realistic number of
  other names in the dict

- I'm worried that negative dict entries could fill the dict beyond
  its capacity.
