Should I have any performance concerns with the index position used to pop() values off of large lists?
Yes. While performance is generally not part of the language specification, in CPython seq.pop(i) is O(len(seq)-i)
In other words, should pop(0) and pop() be time equivalent operations with long lists?
No. If you want this, use collections.deque. -- Terry Jan Reedy -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
