Pseudohash goes the other way, though. Pseudohashes were arrays internally, with a hash glued on so that the items could be accessed by key. The "ordered hash" as provided by PHP or IxHash is a hash primarily, with an array glued on to provide an ordering.

      The fact that they're two completely different things, accessed totally differently, and used totally differently, is not such a minor detail.
