Hi,
I noticed that in python3k, multiplying a sequence by a negative integer is the same as multiplying it by 0, and the result is an empty sequence. It seems to me that there is a more meaningful symantics.
Simply put, a sequence multiplied by -1 can give a reversed sequence.
Then for any sequence "seq", and integer n>0, we can have
"seq * -n" producing "(seq * -1) * n".
Any thoughts?
