[Python-ideas] Ordered storage of keyword arguments

I'd like to resurrect a discussion that went on a little over a year
ago [1] started by Michael Foord suggesting that it'd be nice if
keyword arguments' storage was implemented as an ordered dict as
opposed to the current unordered form.

I'm interested in picking this up for implementation, which presumably
will require moving the implementation of the existing ordereddict
class into the C library.

Are there any issues that this might cause in implementation on the
py3k development line?
