Fuzzy dict access

At the time I wrote this little snippet I was often working with dictionaries in python and struggling to remember the exact keys that would be required to access the fields I wanted. This is long before starting this blog and was one of the mini-projects that has helped push me to start typing up the side projects and wonderings that I have.

The premise is that you have some idea of the path to the desired element in the dictionary but not all of it. Given a dictionary, this program should return the first object in the dictionary tree which matches that path.
