I must think the API good because I have been implementing, in parallel
with this discussion, my own "OrderedDict" with a very similar API (this
is part of a larger project where I recently found the need to have a
well-implemented ordered dict). The only real omission I see is to allow
instantiating a "sorted dict" with an optional cmp function--to allow
the generalization of such features as case-independence, etc.
