Support passing the dict class to asdict #40

A feature idea: attr.asdict currently turns classed into ordinary Python dicts. It'd be useful if a dict factory could be passed in (defauting to just dict). The main use case would be to pass in OrderedDict.

I have a situation at work that this would be useful for, but we're approaching the problem from a different angle so we probably won't need it. Just thought it might be a useful feature and simple to implement. I could put together a pull request.

I guess it might be worth it if it doesn’t add too much complexity. Retaining the order of the attributes sounds like a good thing.
