Aha! That glossary looks like a nice new addition to the tutorial.
Maybe the standard library and the language
reference should link to it somewhere? (maybe
there already such links but I missed them).

Would you agree with Leif's definition that iterable is
any x such that iter(x) does not raise an error? On top
of my head I don't find any counter example and it
is the kind of definition I had in mind.
