The patch doesn't add it to bltinmodule.c.  Perhaps you mean the
additions to Python.h, object.c, and the Makefile.  In that case then
I actually agree.  I was probably just anticipating the use of
OrderedDict by the interpreter.  However, that can wait until needed.

Yeah, it really doesn't need that either (if I remember right).  If a
C-API becomes desirable then it would be easy to add later.
