Ah, I understand. I don't like it, though I'm not sure I can really express why. One reason is that this would mean that PermSpaces would be mutable, and thus not hashable and not usable as keys in dicts and sets. It would also mean I couldn't use the `CachedProperty` pattern all over the class as I do today. So these are a couple of reasons, there might be more that didn't come to me now.

Sure, but even list has copy().  I meant settable property on the generator not on the generated permutation.

Thanks :)

Settable properties are a no-go because I wanted permutation spaces to be immutable. Since the cost of creating a new space is nil (permutations are created on-demand, not on space creation) there isn't a reason to mutate an existing space.

I don't think using a copy() method to would be very nice. But I guess it's a matter of taste.

Looks great!

Why did you go with "get_rapplied", "unrapplied", etc. instead of having a copy() method and using settable properties?

Hi guys,

I just wanted to give an update on this: I just released my own code that does this to PyPI: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/combi

I really like this and hope that it eventually makes it into the stdlib.  It's also a good argument for your other suggestion whereby some of the itertools to return Iterables rather than Iterators like range does.

I'm probably going to implement it in my python_toolbox package. I already implemented 30% and it's really cool. It's at the point where I doubt that I want it in the stdlib because I've gotten so much awesome functionality into it and I'd hate to (a) have 80% of it stripped and (b) have the class names changed to be non-Pythonic :)

At the least, this (a function for getting a specific permutation by
lexicographical-order index) could make a nice cookbook recipe.
