ordered hash tables? Arne Babenhauserheide 08 Sep 2015 09:14 UTC
Hi,

The draft says a hash table

    Has no intrinsic order for the key-value associations it contains.

Does the SRFI need the guarantee that the hash table has no order?

Since ordered hash tables are becoming more common (i.e. they are now
the default in PyPy) this restriction might be too strict. Maybe you
could loosen it up a bit to say

    Can have an intrinsic order for the key-value associations it contains.

Best wishes,
Arne
