FYI os.environ uses something similar: keys and values are encoded and decoded using functions. So any transformation is supported.

http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/eac63e7ceb03/Lib/os.py#l636

On UNIX, the encoder and decoder are os.fsencode() and os.fsdecode() (not exactly, the real functions are more strict on the input type).

On Windows, the encoder converts the key to uppercase.
