If I remember correctly, the complexity and performance of sort/sorted depends if the data set is sorted or not. You may recreated the list/dictionary at each iteration to get performances closer to "items = sorted(dct.items(), key=lambda kv: kv[0])" (dict keys are not sorted by their content, especially with strings).
