Personally I don't think the change in dict order is a problem (hashing
already changes between 32-bit and 64-bit builds, and we sometimes
change the calculation too: it might change *more* often with random
hashes, while it went unnoticed in some cases before). So only (b) is a
problem and I don't think it affects more than 0.01% of
applications/users :)
