I'm sorry, my saying it was obvious may have come off a little  
arrogant. My clumsily delivered point was that because it was a small  
snippet of code it didn't take much time to run through for someone  
who codes daily with Python. What you did there was a perfectly  
ordinary thing to do until experience teaches you how Python does  
things. :)

You're right, I failed to say it explicitely but I was referring to  
the input file.  In some cases, albeit not this one, problems can  
exist in parsing gotchas.
