MergeDict should give key as argument to KeyError

Normally when a dict raises a KeyError it passes the key to .args, but MergeDict does not do this.
to fix simply change raise KeyError to raise KeyError(key) on line 23 of utils/datastructures.py
I'm making a REST-like API that takes input on either POST or GET I wanted to wrap my whole thing in a try...except KeyError, and then give an appropriate error message with the missing field, but unlike request.GET and response.POST which are real dicts, request.REQUEST is a MergeDict and does not pass they key that failed as an argument.
