We either have the way to be consistent with defaultdict and dict or with
Counter, MutableMapping etc.

I think it's a bit too chaotic already to make a fair decision here.  If we
seriously consider a C implementation it would probably be a good idea to call
it `odict`.  C-Classes are usually lower cased as far as I can see.
