Very precious advice. Thank you, indeed. The lesson was good :-)

I'd only like to know if "List.index(vars)" has the same performance than
 "vars in List" or even it's the same thing.
But, so far I still have my own question about that the search goes on the 
key's name rather then its paired value. In fact, in my actual case the value 
doesn't make any use.
However the search goes on a few hundred email ID, the difference is less than 
a jiffy :-)
