Please no.  Having a memory much like a bottomless sieve I have no 
intention of reading the manual every time I need to use string 
prefixes.  Would the table listing "string prefix precedence" in The 
Fine Docs™ be unique in the programming world?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
