[Python-Dev] The current dict is not an "OrderedDict"

This is just a reminder that the current dict is not an "OrderedDict":

>>> from collections import OrderedDict
>>> OrderedDict(a=0, b=1) == OrderedDict(b=1, a=0)
>>> dict(a=0, b=1) == dict(b=1, a=0)

The recent proposal was primarily about guaranteeing the insertion order of
dict literals.

If further guarantees are proposed, perhaps it would be a good idea to
open a new thread and state what exactly is being proposed.
