I'll refer you to what I posted in (what appeared to me as) your other

If you want the unique pairs (i.e. (12,7) is equivalent to (7,12)), I
*think* you can do a simple chain:

pool = []
for x in xrange(1,13):
for y in xrange(x, 13):
pool.append((x,y))

because that will give you the sets ordered by the smallest - you'll get
1x1-12, then 2x2-12, etc.

HTH,
Wayne
