It follows from some basic concepts of Python that
     "array = ([0] * 10) * 10"
does not behave as usually intended. This is a well-known "dark 
corner" of Python; a place it is simply best to avoid. Is this 
fixable? I think dark corners like this should be documented 

Thanks for the wonderful language,
Ed Jones
