excellent and extraordinarily obvious

Thanks for the pointer.

a bit unfortunate that old docs for a module that doesn't seem to exist in py3 with less clear but still correct words is still the top google result for python string strip. 


 string.lstrip(s[, chars])¶

    Return a copy of the string with leading characters removed. If chars is omitted or None, whitespace characters are removed. If given and not None, chars must be a string; the characters in the string will be stripped from the beginning of the string this method is called on.
That function actually also behaves like str.lstrip() does in Python 3:

>>> string.lstrip('abcd', 'ba')
