There's all kinds of tricks we could do but none of them are worth it.  It took Eric Snow a long time to write the OrderedDict patch and it took years to get most of the bugs out of it.  I would really hate to go through a redesign and eat up our time for something that probably won't be much used any more.

I'm really just aiming for something as simple as s/OrderedDict/dict in namedtuple :-)
