No, you get a Python object with both iterables as instance variables.
Instance variables happen to be stored using a dict (which is
accessible as .__dict__), but that's to some extent an implementation
detail whose relevance here I fail to see. My point was that, as Ian
explained, your __iter__() method, as written, is horribly broken.

I'm confused as to why you wrote a class (particularly when its name
is an *action* rather than a noun; big red flag right there!) for your
task in the first place. I think you'd be best served by moving your
parsing code into a function and using a
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/sorteddict , which provides the
sorted-keys property you seemed to be trying to accomplish.
Also, please avoid top-posting in the future. (See
