In Python 3.6 and current repo (pre-3.7), the docstring for collections.OrderedDict.__init__() stats that keyword argument order is arbitrary. That is untrue if I properly understand PEP 468, which as of Python 3.6 makes the order of kwargs stable / identical to the order seen in the source code.

Associated PR imminent.

Currently there are two implementations of OrderedDict, and Python implementation is not used. Is C implementation need an update? What about the module documentation, is it need an update?

I don't think that we should include such details about past Python versions in docstrings. I can't remember precedences.

Past Python details should not be included in docstrings; it should simply represent the current code.
