This is a misquote, since Andrea paraphrased what Peter Maas said.  It
was Peter that suggested string usage to model memory (and obviously
forgot momentarily about string immutability in python).

If you included (even better, read :) the rest of Andrea's paragraph, it
would be obvious that you actually agree with Andrea.
