The point to Thesaurus for those that want to pay attention:
The concept in these ~25 lines of code have changed the way I program Python
and reduced existing functionally identical code up to 30%...and I like the 
code better.

If that doesn't peak your interest, then move on...nothing here for you to 

If you feel it needs to be expanded/corrected, do it and share it. If you can 
do it better, re-implement it. That's why I sent it to the mailing list.
