On Thu, 25 Jun 2009 17:56:47 +0100, I burbled incoherently:

Sorry to follow up my own post yet again (amongst my weapons is
a fanatical attention to detail when it's too late!), but I had 
better rephrase that question:

Scratch "list object", and replace it with something like: "some
kind of iterator object, that is at least already implicit in 2.1
(although the term 'iterator' isn't mentioned in the index to the
2nd edition of Beazley's book)".  Something like that!  8-P
