Indeed it's easy enough to call list() or set() on the result if you need it.

On the other hand, the problem with returning a dict view is that it makes the return type dependent on an implementation detail. Returning a simple iterator would be great, except that you can't as easily test it for emptiness.

So perhaps two methods are needed:
- a keys() method returning an iterator
- a has_keys() method returning a boolean
