more new and improved sequence/iterators behaviour fun:

Python 2.3.3 (#2, Jan 13 2004, 00:47:05)
[GCC 3.3.3 20040110 (prerelease) (Debian)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> 'x'.join({'foo': 'bar'})

i actually ran into this when i was staring at code written
by a coworker and wondered how on earth it ever worked...
(it didn't, since it really meant to use a list and wanted
order to be preserved, but it misbehaved silently instead of
raising an exception).
