+/* A `dequeobject` is composed of a doubly-linked list of `block` nodes.
+ * This list is not circular (the leftmost block has leftlink==NULL,
+ * and the rightmost block has rightlink==NULL).  A deque d's first
+ * element is at d.leftblock[leftindex] and its last element is at
+ * d.rightblock[rightindex]; note that, unlike as for Python slice
+ * indices, this indices are inclusive on both ends.
+ * The list of blocks is never empty.  An empty deque d has
+ * d.leftblock == d.rightblock != NULL; d.len == 0; and
+ * d.leftindex > d.rightindex; checking for d.len == 0 is the intended
+ * way to see whether d is empty.
+ * Note that since d.leftindex and d.rightindex may be indices into
+ * distinct blocks (and certainly are, for and d with len(d) > BLOCKLEN),
+ * it's not generally true that d.leftindex <= d.rightindex.
