Add a version number to dict keys.

PEP 509 added a version number to dicts. Unfortunately this is no use for optimizing attribute loads and store on instances.
We need to know whether the keys are as expected, not the dict as that is likely to be different each time.

We can add a 32 bit version number and actually reduce memory use by taking advantage of the redundancy in the rest of the keys object.
