The test cases from the bottom of:
especially testRepeatedObjects() and testNonRecursion(), failed with the
older code. The way I'm doing it now is much better, even though it's
still very subtle.
I like the code though, just because it isolates the hard part about
writing a function like this. Once we have DeepStr, the implementation of
the deep_str function is simple. Of course, all of this is already
implemented deep in the bowels of Python already, but I wanted to make
Anyway, thanks again for the feedback; I'm considering this a done project
