frankly, there's no excuse for not knowing what everyone else does
when you use Python.  Python comes with the source code for 100s
of modules, and most of that code is quite readable.  And if that's not
enough, there are 1000s of Python-powered software packages out

My advice to newcomers is to read more code than you write.
