[erlang-questions] orddict and dict and types

Hi,
I swapped orddict for dict in a module. When I used orddict I took advantage of the fact orddict was just a list to have some nice detailed types. I see that dict has the type dict(key, value) in the documentation, but it’s not exported. Now I seem to have lost all that richness I was able to express with orddict (or [{Key, Val}] anyway.)

Is there anyway to keep the detailed type specs and use dict() you can think of? Why does dict.erl not export dict(K, V) ?

Cheers

Russell
