Note that the primary point of the referenced bug report

    <http://www.python.org/sf/448679>  Left to right

is that the Ref Man doesn't really address Python's evaluation order.  Guido
has said he intended left-to-right, in which case the dict example would be
an endcase glitch.  I don't believe the language definition currently
requires or forbids any specific eval order here, though.
