Don't really care myself.  Would be nice if the docstring for 
dict.update() matched the new realities, though <wink>.

BTW, there is a reliable and conventional way to detect 
whether the 'dict' argument was passed to UserDict.update:  
use a unique marker object instead of the universally visible 
None.  Like

_marker = object()

at module level, and

    ...(self, dict=_marker, ...)

in the method defn.  That can't be fooled without deliberate 
intent to deceive.
