Hi Anne,

thanks for your input, too.

You're probably right.  Together with the behaviour change, I'd say it's a bad 
idea to change the default.

And you're right concerning the API - it would've been better to explicitly 
pass a dict, but I don't want to introduce a new function for this reason.

Best,
  Hans
