[TriZPUG] filling lists

I'm using a list to hold a 2-D array of pixels, since AFAIK 
there are no arrays in python. My initial code assigned 
pixels in varying orders (index could be anything) but I 
soon found that

list_name.insert(index, element)

pushed all elements beyond index one slot further down the 
list. I could first use `del list_name(index)` first, but 
this is more complicated than I want (assignement would be a 
function which did a del and then insert; it would have to 
be passed the list, index and element).

I can rearrange my code to fill the list in order from 
index=0 without causing major grief.

I assume there's no simple way of doing the following 

list_name(index) = element

Is filling the list in order the usual way of handling this 

Thanks Joe
