Actually, that's the first thing I wanted to bark on, before seeing the 
little note above it: "#Py3k, UTF-8". I wonder though, there is a 
potential problem if someone (users) is running this py3k code in a 
python2.x. The code is a perfectly legal and correct python 2.x code, but 
uses input() instead of raw_input(), we all know the evil of 2.x's input
