so how again is the much better than:
> Isn't this the status quo?
> a, b, c = [mapping[k] for k in ('a', 'b', 'c')]
the objection to that was that it gets ugly when you've got longer, more
realistic names (and maybe more of them.)
fee, fi, fo, fum = [mapping[k] for k in ('fee', 'fi', 'fo', 'fum')]
only a little more typing, and in both cases, you need to specify the names
(of course, they don't need to be the same names...)
