Define "doesn't suck". If I were to hack one up, it would look
something like this:
from collections import Mapping, Hashable
class frozendict(Mapping, Hashable):
def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
self.__dict = dict(*args, **kwargs)
def __getitem__(self, key):
return 'frozendict(%r)' % (self.__dict,)
Not extensively tested, but it seems to work pretty well for me.
