not sure how people do this, or if I missed something obvious in the
stdlib, but I often have this pattern:
starts = ('a', 'b', 'c')
somestring = 'acapulco'
for start in starts:
So what about a startsin() method, that would iterate over a sequence:
if somestring.startsin('a', 'b', 'c'):
Implementing it in C should be faster as well
same deal with .endswith I guess
