In versions of Python that support it, one can iterate over dictionaries
where `for x in D' (where D is a dictionary) is equivalent to `for x in
D.keys()'. Older version of Python do not support them.

In that code, on each iteration through the loop, key is the key; d[key]
is the value associated with that key in the dictionary d.
