     array.array(typecode, [fillvalue]) * n

Perhaps the OP wanted the internal array size initialized, but not used. Currently the internal array will automatically be reallocated to grow as needed. Which could be a performance hit if you know it’s going to grow large. 

But frankly, it would be a rare case where this would be noticeable.
