I also suggest perusing the archived PyDev (Python Development mailing 
list) summaries for the last couple of years (see python.org).  Every two 
weeks, Brett Cannon has condensed everything down to a few pages.  You can 
easily focus on the topics of interest to you.  For instance, there was 
discussion of making lists truly double-ended, but it was decided to settle 
for certain improvements in the list implementation while adding 
collections.deque (sp?) in 2.4.
