I think it's *much* more common to append than to prepend. In fact, I can't
remember when I prepended to a list in Python (except as a special case of
adding something at some point in the list). Imho, adding extra space at the
beginning of lists is mostly a waste of space.
So I would find it interesting to know why you use prepending so much :)
