I both copy from the interactive prompt and write myself by hand.
Either way, I don't want to care about order where order doesn't
matter. The less thought required to write a test or example, the
easier it is to write a test or example, and therefore the more
tests/examples people will write.
Why should we ever care about the order of a dict when writing an
example or test case?

There isn't any (non-insane?) way to replace the repr that %r uses
(which is not builtins.repr).
