I was probably being overly helpful, in a bad way. I'm new to python,
I'm not very pythonic yet, and still learning the python idioms.
Not sure why I slipped into the habit of testing for None, though. :-(
Probably a perl thing, where I'm regularly testing for defined-ness.
"if ($foo)" is different than "if (defined $foo)"
Still, I'm really like python so far.
