I've only ever known Python (well, I've almost forgotten Bash), and when I
first needed a range test, I guessed at the above form and was pleasantly
surprised that it worked: it seemed too good to be true that Python was smart
enough to know I wanted the same "x" to be an operand in two comparisons at
once.

wanted his code reviewed!
