Well I did a search on "Python variable length arguments" and found a
hit that seems to explain the *fields parameter:

When you declare an argment to start with '*', it takes the argument
list into an array.

def foo(*args):
  print "Number of arguments:", len(args)
  print "Arguments are: ", args
