Sorry, that was a slightly mischievous benchmark indeed. -- Whether the proposal
is surreal or not depends on the likelihood that a) a substantially faster dict
algorithm will emerge and b) CPython, PyPy and Jython will switch to it.

My proposal was based on the fact that for almost two release cycles the
ordering implementation detail hasn't changed.
