It seems this class was exported so it can be accessed through the Python 
bindings.  Considering it wasn't exported before, I'm wondering why it was 
exported for Python?

Since removing it would be an ABI for Python scripts and the tagging is 
happening today, can we just back out the KEntryMap API from Python?  We can 
add it back for the next release if there is a use case for it.

@David Faure, when do you plan on tagging this change?  For now I committed a 
change to the auto test so it will at least build on Windows 
(b939b48f8d5e5eaf9a51a7e9bda2ad8cedca27d9) which should be included.  Would 
there be time to remove KEntryMap before the tag/release?
