The DictMixin class from the UserDict module is *not* deprecated -- only
the UserDict class from the same module.  (If you found info saying
otherwise pls provide a URL: the info is wrong and I'll try to get it
fixed -- thanks!).  DictMixin's purpose is exactly as you state: letting
you make a complete mapping class out of one which only supplies the
very basics, by mix-in inheritance.
