Explain this "some reason". This smells, and the way to go would be to
use a dict mapping a_n to whatever is in the list - not creating
variables. How do you want to access generated variables anyway -
especially when you don't have the faintest idea how many of them there
are? Obviously there can't be code written based on that.
