That's a clever work around.  Thanks, Raymond.  Clearly you had a need
for this.  Do you feel it's a common need that should be submitted as
a Python feature request?  To me it seems like such a simple thing
that would increase the general utility of the set class.  I suppose I
could start another thread like "feature request: New method for set -
get_equivalent".
