Sorry one more time (it is early morning and I should drink a cup of coffee
first before posting here). Of course it should be `tuple(sorted(('al',
'ical'), key=len, reverse=True))`, I hope it was obvious to everyone from
the very beginning.
with kind regards,

>>> There's a slight problem with that: what happens if more than one suffix

>>> "musical".lcut(('al', 'ical'))
>>> should the suffix "al" be removed, leaving "music"? (First match wins.)
>>> Or should the suffix "ical" be removed, leaving "mus"? (Longest match
>> I think you should choose "First match wins", because in this case you

>> 'ical'))))`. But if you choose "Longest match wins" there is no chance
