Can you please discuss this somewhere else?
Either on python-dev, where I don't see it this obvious,
or on python-list, where I can contribute in the discussion.
I get frustated when I follow a discussion which I can't join!

I want to say that if types will eventually be classes in the Far Future,
a SequenceType could be implemented.
