Is there an easier way to express this list slicing?

Grrrr... that's what I get for not keeping editor and interpreter windows in
sync. My post was referencing vars I had defined in the interpreter, but
which the function had no clue of. !!! Here's a working version.
ret = 
cur = 0
for length in lens:
if length is not None:
ret.append( src[cur:cur+length] )
cur += length
ret.append( src[cur:] )
origlist = list("ABCDEFGHIJ")
alist, blist, clist, dlist = splitUp( origlist, (1,1,3,None) )
print alist, blist, clist, dlist
