Python generally allows trailing commas so that it is easier to write sequence 
literals which are appended to later.

There's also the fact that a trailing comma is used to make a 1-element tuple 
- so it could be said that the exception is actually that the comma after the 
last item can be optionally left out when there is more than one item in the 
sequence :)
