a list of Checkbuttons

OK I'm tired, I've got a cold, and my brain isn't working very well. I
have a result set ( a tuple of tuples) from a db. Each element has two
elements; classification number, and classification heading. i.e.
result=((001,'heading one'),(002,'heading two'),...)
classification numbers may not be in numerical order, and may skip
numbers, so they are not good as an index.
I want to create tkinter Checkbuttons that allow me to select which
apply to the record I'm editing. What comes to my sub-par mind is to
create a list and assign Checkbuttons to each element. something like:
classifications = 
for count, classification in enumerate(result):
classifications.append( (IntVar(),classification) )
text=str(classification)+': '+classification ,
then to collect which boxes are checked:
for check in classifications:
if check.get() == 1:
print 'classification number %s selected" % check
Is this the smartest way to do this? It should work, but will I be able
to understand this 6 months from now?
