For example, the dict.pack help.

Connecting a dict object to the output of dict.pack shows how it works in context. Even clearer would be to include a dict.view object to show its contents actively changing.

Without it, users are looking at the reference (dictionary u007000984, for example), which I find needlessly confusing. How does this show me how to easily use the object?

Similarly, the advanced tab in dict.pack help doesn’t show how referencing other dictionaries can be easily used. In this case, as a user, I’d like to be able to double click the dict objects and see the origins and results.
