An if-elif-else structure is usually broken if you leave out the
else part. When I don't expect it to ever actually happen when
the program is working correctly it looks like this:

   else:
      raise SomeException("{} can't happen!".format(the_context))

else: raise exception constructs have saved me a lot of time.
