You might need to be a bit clearer about what you mean by subdicts. I
don't really know what you mean.

Could you perhaps post some short code that creates the kind of data
structure you are referring to?

e.g. Do you mean something like this?

d = {
    'a': {'b': 'Favicon'},
    'b': {'c': 'Favicon'},
