Hi all,

It miht sound stupid or useless, or maybe someone has already mentioned 
it but sometimes I wish Python could provdie an "Empty" keyword like The 
"None" one.

It would be usefull to validdate the emptyness of any scalar or sequence 
in an uniform way instead of using things such as :

if len(mylist) == 0:

which I really dislike.

It makes in my head but it might be stupid.

Thanks for your feedback.
