Hm... I've searched about the implementation of protocols and now (I
believe) I know how to implement the iterable protocol, for instance,
but have no clue about how to define my own... I'm surely not thinking
the right way, but I don't seem to be able to wrap my head around the
implementation details of "custom" protocols... Is it just a matter of
extending the different object classes (dict, list, tuple...)? Where
do you put the interface/protocol code? :-?

Guillermo
