Creating Long Lists

I am using python 2.6.2, so it may no longer be a problem.

I am open to using another data type, but the way I read the
documentation array.array only supports numeric types, not arbitrary
objects.  I also tried playing around with numpy arrays, albeit for
only a short time, and it seems that although they do support
arbitrary objects they seem to be geared toward numbers as well and I
found it cumbersome to manipulate objects with them.  It could be
though that if I understood them better they would work fine.  Also do
numpy arrays support sorting arbitrary objects, I only saw a method
that sorts numbers.
