Checked my mail and yes, it was not outright clear what I meant in the
dictionary, sorry. Anyway if you check the rest of the code you'll see
it works as I said and you don't use the intermediate values between the
tens. As usual I learned something from the exercise, I thought that
indexed access would be faster than list access, didn't think lists
where implemented as C arrays (because they have no fixed size), now I
can see tuples will be faster and will save memory because memory will
not have to be reserved in chunks.
