Hi Prospero,

Making a two-dimensional list is not immediately obviously --- but that's
why there's a FAQ entry about it:



You're right: the general approach is to use a list of lists.  The only
thing to be careful about is making sure each individual sublist is
separate from the others.

Hope this helps!
