Why are there no ordered dictionaries?

Of course ours is ordered *and* orderable ! You can explicitly alter
the sequence attribute to change the ordering.

I think we're looking at improving performance based on some of the
suggestions here - as well as possibly widening it to include some of
the alternative use cases. (Or at least Nicola Larosa will do it and
I'll criticise it).

All for another day though...
