Let's admit they don't have to be unique (it's easy to implement all sort of 
data structures in pure python), but what would be the syntax for modifying 
an existing value, for example, what should be the result of two consecutive 
assignements ?

d[5] = None
d[5] = 0
d[5] == [ None, 0 ] ??

What exactly are you trying to achieve ?
