Aaargh!

I should have known - you use a string method to get a list of words,
but you have to go to the list to get a list of characters from a string.
There is no string method to do it, which is what I am complaining
about.

Is there a reason for this, or is the lack of symmetry just an historical
artefact?

The link that jon vs python supplied is interesting.
