Ha ha ha, very amusing. But I was genuinely confused, because I know 
you're an experienced Python coder and not some n00b, so I thought maybe 
you were referring to something that escaped me. Your response, apt 
though it may be, does nothing to clear up my confusion.

Presumably if you had a serious response you would have made it, so I'll 
chalk it up to a generalised confusion field.
