Err, that's obviously wrong. I obviously meant
if len(args) == 1 and \
type(args) in (types.ListType, types.TupleType):
Although obviously that doesn't take into account arbitrary sequences.
In that case a reasonable test might be to try to do len(args), catch
the error if it's not a sequence type, and go from there.
