This is what Guido wrote there:

(Not that it isn't a good idea to avoid obvious clashes --
'str' for string variables and 'type' for type variables being the
most obvious stumbling blocks.)

I can accept that. :)

(Actually, in my haste I didn't notice that "str" was being defined inside a 
function.  As a global it really would be a no-no.)
