Hi!

Is there a function or method in the standard language that can
non-destructively return a list without a specified element? Would it
be possible to add it as a method to lists?

i.e:

# pseudocode

class list:
    def without(self,element):
        temp = self[:]
        temp.remove(element)
        return temp

It might be useful - and sure beats using a temp-variable ;)
