I have just released rbdict, a dictionary as a Red-Black tree.

This is a dict compatible dictionary based on Red-Black trees. It supports
the full dict interface and is drop-in compatible with both dict and
orddict. Documentation is included.

There is also an alternate implementation, in rbdict1, which is a little
slower but is included as another example of working on red-black trees.
These are tricky little bastards so it is helpful to see other

It is down-loadable from trapext.org:


It would be good to see how it fares under the same unit tests as dict, and
orddict. Hint, hint!
