I'm not sure the words "deep copy" and "value" really means what you
think they do. maybe you should spend a little time with Python's
documentation, instead of making up absurd theories about how things
might work, only to get disappointed every time reality disagrees.

what's wrong with using enumerate? or a list comprehension? or some
other of the many different ways you can use to build a list from a set
