For what it's worth, Ruby's Array class has just such a "flatten"

This sure seems more like it oughta be a method, which displays either
in Python's general duck-typing philosophy or a gap in my understanding
(possibly polluted by a couple years' worth of Ruby programming):
If we have come across the need/desire for a new general method that
should work just fine with anything that "quacks like a sequence", and
we would like to make it available to any sequence in any of our Python
code, and I want to invoke it as foo.method for any foo that is
a sequence, then where/how would I define such a method?
