I'd have thought it would be the standard library and not the language 
that provided a sorted mapping.  Are you also saying that this has to be 
implemented as a tree, such that this has to be provided by cPython, 
Jython, IronPython, Pypy and so on and so forth?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
