@serhiy.storchaka: I don't think that will work.

First of all,

    x, y = item

will raise a ValueError if fed an iterable whose length is not exactly 2, so you would have to check for that. Moreover, if item is something like a dict, for example, then:

    {"a": 1, "b": 2} in DictLikeMapping(a="b")

could return True, which I don't think would be expected behavior.

I'm not terribly fond of the instance check myself, but in this case I can't see any other way to do it: the built in dict_items necessarily consists of *tuples* of key-value pairs.
