I'm leaving that quote anonymous so nobody gives it more or less weight than
it deserves <wink>.  I prefer enumerate(), because a transitive verb is more
appropriate than a noun.  OTOH, enumerate() is just a fancy pants way of
saying "countoff()", which is nicely confusable with operator.countOf if
you're tired <wink>.
