Thanks to all the hints which seem to prove that there is one and only one
sensible approach - though some (like me) needed a few more lines.
It is just funny how easy horizontal slicing is made (list[:]) but how
"difficult" vertical slicing is. It is a common task and one does not
realize how often one does need vertical slicing. eg.: getting the keys of
dictionary is a vertical slicing, or turning a list into a dict involves
Just out of pure curiosity: Is there a langue that allows vertical and
horizontal slicing and dicing with the same built-in pattern?
