  Don't confuse being the PEP shephard with being the implementor,
though *having* an implementation is important.  Who does it is
  Can't the implementation be to create an xrange object instead of a
list?  Seems easy enough on first glance.
  But then, I've been carefully ignoring that whole discussion.  ;)
