    py: Implement full behaviour of dict.update(), and dict(). · bcb6ca4d
    Damien George authored
    Add keyword args to dict.update(), and ability to take a dictionary as
    dict() class constructor can now use dict.update() directly.
    This patch loses fast path for dict(other_dict), but is that really
    needed?  Any anyway, this idiom will now re-hash the dictionary, so is
    arguably more memory efficient.
    Addresses issue #647.
