I must be missing something. enumerate(x) is an iterator with len(x)
values, each a pair; why would reversing it somehow "transpose" it...?

I'm not sure if reversed should take several parameters, but it if did this
would be like calling:
reversed( (0, x), (1,x), (2,x) )
If it "reversed each parameter and returned them in lockstep" then I'd
have x first and (0,1,2) second, no?
