Wow! Just when I think I'm getting to know Python something new bites me.
I never knew Python could do comparisons like that - in fact I don't 
think I know of any other programming language I've used that did it... 
OTOH that may be because I always parenthesize comparisons from years 
of being bitten by C...

Once again in penance I cite the doc page reference:


What a language :-)
