Well, infinite lists (either circular or dynamically-growing) would be
one (unless you consider infinity to be a valid value of length, of
Dictionaries with default value would be another (of course, Python 2.5
defaultdict *does* have length, but I would claim it is a wart).
But I agree those are pathological cases.
