I come from Z80A/GWBASIC/VB and a little C, I would describe a Python
variable as a pointer - in that it contains the address of something.
What that "something" is, is a little fuzzy. Right now I imagine it's to a
kind of structure which has meta info about the object as well as it's
How far off would that be?
