Python Metalanguage confusticates and bebothers me...

Python itself is okay (well, so far anyway). But the
metalanguage -- the terminology used to discuss features
of the language -- is weirding me out. "Dictionaries"
aren't dictionaries at all, they're associative arrays.
"Tuples" don't necessarily have three elements. I
suppose once I get used to this stuff it'll be okay...
but it reminds me of Reinhold Neibuhr.
