oh well, then no warning, either.

Guido wrote a note to python-ideas about the conflict between the use cases
of "scripting" and "large system development" -- he urged both camps, to
respect and listen to each other.

I think this is very much a "scripters" issue -- so no unit tests, etc....

For my part, I STILL have to kick myself once in a while for using square
arrays in testing/exploration!
