> 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.
> The corresponding issue in the tracker: http://bugs.python.org/issue5397
> Link to the PEP: http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0372/
> Anything else that should be done?
Guido, I'm recommending this PEP for acceptance.
