I used 'update' simply as an example to illustrate the issue of potential name 
clashes.  I didn't actually know what the flag names were, what I worry about 
is that now or in the future either the flag names or the dict method list can 
grow in a direction that causes a clash.

Sorry if a poor choice of example caused confusion, I hope the issue I'm 
trying to point out is clear now.
