PEP 372 was modified so that it provides a simpler API (only the dict API
to be exact) and it was decided to start with a Python-only implementation
and replace it with a C version later if necessary.
Annotated changes from earlier versions of the PEP:
- the extra API for ordered dict was dropped to keep the interface
simple and clean. Future versions can still be expanded but it's
impossible to drop features later on.
- To keep the implementation simple 3.1 / 2.7 will ship with a
Python-only version of the class. It can still be rewritten in
C if it turns out to be too slow or thread safety is required.
