return [j for i,j in sorted(enumerate(p), key=itemgetter(1))]
looks a little cleaner to me.
In Haskell or ML, you can use patterns that contain wild
cards that play a role in the pattern-matching but don't establish any
binding. Can that be done in Python?
Not as much. You could say something like
sorted(enumerate(p), key=lambda(_,j): j)
which gets the meaning across (it binds the symbol "_" though this
doesn't escape the lambda).
