Wow that's odd:

In [265]: a = list('abcdef')

In [266]: a
Out[266]: ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f']

In [267]: 'c' in a
Out[267]: True

In [268]: 'c' in a == True
Out[268]: False

In [269]: ('c' in a) == True
Out[269]: True

In [270]: 'c' in (a == True)
<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>             Traceback (most recent call last)

/home/bj/<ipython console> in <module>()

<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: argument of type 'bool' is not iterable

What's going on there?
