This method returns a list, the example from The Fine Docs being:-
[('a', 5), ('r', 2), ('b', 2)]
With the trend in Python being more and more towards methods returning
iterators, is there ever likely to be an imost_common method, or has
this been suggested and rejected, or what? I'm really just curious, but
if enough people were to express an interest and it hasn't already been
done, I'd happily raise an enhancement request on the bug tracker.
My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
