Classes and helpers to generate and maintain a pool of unique integer keys. Priority is given to reusing freed keys rather than generating new ones.

This package is meant for situations where keys for a dict are irrelevant or arbitrary.

Typical usage:

from keypool import KeypoolDict
items = KeypoolDict()

# Assign a value with a unique, generated key
items[items.next()] = 'hello, world'

# Assign a value but capture the key
key = items.setitem('hello again, world')

# Assign anything except an integer, like a normal dict
items['hello'] = 'world'
