I implemented "ordered". Because:
* "orderd" is easier to explain than "ordered if no deletion".
* I don't want to split sparse index hash and dense entry array.
In case of very small dict, index hash (8byte) and first two entries
can be on one cache line.
* Easy to implement "split dictionary" (aka. key sharing dictionary).
You can see what I implemented in here.
