If hash() is modified, str(dict) and str(set) will change for example. It may break doctests. Can we consider that the application should not rely (indirectly) on hash and so fix (for example) their doctests? Or is it a backward incompatibility?

hash() was already modified in major Python versions.

For this specific issue, I consider that security is more important than str(dict).
