I won't try to influence the outcome of this discussion, but I'd like to correct myself: in the measures I posted, "true randomness" is not needed at all.  The exact criterion might be hard to pin down, but as a first approximation, we get the same answers as long as most keys have different hashes, as all the bits of the hash are used by the dict lookup in only a few iterations.  No two small ints have the same hash, by construction.  You can build a sequence of (long) integers that have all exactly the same hash, but doing that is not as easy as "2**k".
