Just to be clear, PEP 520 is more than just OrderedDict-by-default.
In fact, the key point is preserving the definition order, which the
PEP now reflects better.  Raymond's compact dict would only provide
the ordered-by-default part and does nothing to persist the definition
order like the PEP specifies.
