Testing my understanding -- the following snippet from the PEP match group_shapes(): case , [point := Point(x, y), *other]: will succeed if group_shapes() returns two lists, the first one being empty and the second one starting with a Point() ?
Correct. And it binds four variables: point, x, y, and other.
Okay, so following that example some more:
`other` is all the other items in `group_shape`'s second list
`x` and `y` are the x,y values from the second list's first element (which is a Point)
`point` is... the first element of the second list? Or a __match__ object?
