The patch allows the following syntax for s set/frozenset:
* s.union(a, b, c,...)
* s.update(a, b, c,...)
* s.intersection(a, b, c,...)
* s.intersection_update(a, b, c,...)

By extension:
* set.union(a, b, c,...) # provided a is a set/frozenset
* ...

Union is extended by iterative application of set_union_internal
Intersection is optimized by sorting all sets/frozensets/dicts in 
increasing order of size and only iterating over elements in the 
smallest.
