reference or pointer to some object?

thank you all for your explanations.

I still wonder why a concept like "references" was not
implemented in Python.  I think it is (even if small)
an overhead to wrap an object in a list or a dictionary.

Isn't it possible to extend Python in a way to use
real references?  Or isn't that regarded as necessary?

Thanks for any hints,
