Only if there are no ordering constraints and no need for multiple
elements with the same name. The make statement was built to mirror the
the class statement, so the body is just executed in a regular Python
dict. Hence, you can only have one value for each name, and the order
in which the names appear is not maintained. There's some discussion of
workarounds_ for this in the PEP, but they're pretty hackish.
