[Python-Dev] collections module (correction)

And a correction to the size method I suggested for the queue object:

    def size(self):
        return sum(map(len, self.superlist))

The previous one was giving wrong results when get was called N times
and N % maximum_sublist_size != 0.

I believe this should be implemented in C, otherwise the overhead would
be too much for queues that never grew.
