is actually wrong, since it needs a seuqence, not just
the arg tuple. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this?
Exactly the opposite as in list.append(), since in this
case we are just expecting strings?

While I have to say that

>>> " ".join("123")
'1 2 3'

is not a feature to me but just annoying ;-)
