probably a dumb question, but I didn't find something elegant for my
problem so far.
In perl you can unpack the element of a list to variables similar as
(a, b, c = [0, 1, 2]), but the number of variables need not to fit the
of list elements.
That means, if you have less list elements variables are filled with
'undef' (None in python), if you have more list elements as necessary
the rest is ignored.
How can I achieve this behaviour with python in an elegant and fast
