Coming from a traditional language background, I have had to do a lot of
back-translation, lists/sequences/tuples to various arrays and the like, so
I get where you are coming from Thomas.  It's weird having three different
data types that implement array-like behavior with teeny differences that
are nonetheless critical to proper code writing.  I still haven't figured
out the purpose of tuples, and dictionaries look cool as heck but I can't
figure out how to turn them into something I recognize, though I've looked
at a number of examples of how to use them to create analogs to heaps, tree
structures and things I'm used to from the Pascal/C world.
