New submission from anatoly techtonik:

If stack is saved in list and printed to the screen, it will be printed as:

And the last elements is the bottom element. The documentation at http://docs.python.org/3/reference/datamodel.html#frame-objects refers "bottom element" to be the first one. That's confusing. It is better to avoid top/bottom and use first/last or root/terminal.
