How many times do you plan on doing this? On my system I just timed adding 
2 million elements to a dictionary: it took 0.35 seconds. Appending 2 
million elements to a list took 0.43 seconds.

Unless you really do need to repeat this operation many many many times 
then just write the obvious code instead of wasting your (and our) time 
trying to micro-optimise.
