Luckily you are wrong! Keys can be numbers, strings, AND tuples of immutable
data!!!

Example:

a="first"
b=2
x={}
x[(a,b)]="hi"
print x

However it will not work when assigning objects or lists to a or b.

So you can use it when you store your objects in a list and refer to them by
indexes. This is old fashioned stuff but may be really efficient.
