And strings which are kind of a collection but only hold characters...
Personally I like to think of Python collections as being like
or ObjectiveC collections. They hold objects. And since everything is
a subclass of object they hold anything... It doesn't work completely
but it mostly keeps me sane... :-)
But it does mean that anything more fine grained than object is
down to the programmer.
