Again, we've never had hash tables. If you want to treat struct as an
associative array, it would require more work.

I think you mean that the documentation never consistently said we had or didn't have hash table functionality but that we actually did have easily discoverable and viable hash tables via setfield() and getfield()? The documentation even uses the terms "field" and "key" interchangeably and I think anyone even modestly familiar with data structures would recognize that hint.

I get that you like to go out of your way to ignore, misunderstand and belittle Serge for some reason, but why do you insist on punishing the rest of us with rash and unnecessary changes just to undermine Serge? You seem to drop everything and move heaven and earth whenever Serge says anything. It's really getting old.
