This is how Python prints a list of instance objects.  If the list 
contained the integer ids, which would only happen if you explicitly 
created a list of ids (pretty useless, usually), it would print them as 
integers.  Kent's solution to your questions assumes that you indeed have 
objects and not addresses.
