>A while ago, I've posted a recipie about finding a common prefix to a list
>of strings. While the recipie itself is quite bad (I have to admit) and I
>didn't know at that time that this problem was solved already in the
>os.path module.
>The interesting part can be found in the commentaries, as this turned out to
>be a quest for the most efficient algorithm to solve this particular
