the consensus on this list over the last year seems to be that optimized code is
usually the simplest implementation.  If you feel you are going through
hoops getting something working you probably need to take a step back, ponder
and maybe ask a question.

BTW tutor at python.org is a great place for new python coders to hang out, read,
and learn.
