I have implemented a list/dictionary hybrid in my SGF Parser Library (class
Node in http://gotools.sourceforge.net/sgflib/ ). It doesn't do ordered
keys(), but it does do indexing by integer (note that in this library, no
numeric dictionary keys will ever be used). It may give you a few ideas.

Please send me a copy of your final implementation of indexed dictionaries;
I'd be interested to see what you come up with.
