George Gamow wrote a book titled "One Two Three... Infinity". So there seems
to be some authority behind things getting rather innumerable after three!
(Gamow being one of the three involved in the famously named
Alpher-Bethe-Gamow theory of the origin of the elements (the real names of
the authors being a play on the first three letters of the greek alphabet).)

Sorry, not sure what this has to do with Python....
