[Python-Dev] Non-string keys in namespace dicts

Are there any use-cases for allowing namespace dicts (such as globals, 
builtins and classes) to have non-string keys? I'm asking because I'm 
planning on accelerating method lookups next, and the possibility of a 
key compare changing the underlying dict could be a major pain. (It was 
a minor pain for globals.)
