Specifically, the entry reads:

"The dict type has been reimplemented to use a faster, more compact representation similar to the PyPy dict implementation."

Through, the text describing the new implementation doesn't mention anything on speed, it only mentions memory usage.

issue27350 and, specifically, msg275587 even report a slight regression ok key look-ups. Am I interpreting this differently? If not, is it a good idea to be stating it is faster?
