Looking more, it's not clear. 

        print >>self.stdout, repr(Places.objects.all())

seemed to indicate that foo was a list. Also, that one can append 
'.iterator()' suggests that .all() does not by itself return 
an iterator. 

So Places.objects.all() is looking more like a list 
(or more broadly, sequence) now.
