Depends on the definition of 'type'. I often have instances of different
- possibly unrelated - classes in a same list. Fact is that these
instances usually share a common (implied) interface, but, well,
sometimes they don't...

You may not know, but Python has a builtin dict (ie : hashtable) type.
It's very handy when you just want to "group different objects" while
still using meaningful names.
