I figured that out after a while, but the original problem remained: The
Lines type does not evaluate to FALSE in boolean expressions, even when

Empty lines are contain [''], so I have to use a string.join() to get it to
be '', which evaluates to false.

I know lines is a set of some sort, but shouldn't it evaluate to FALSE in
boolean expressions anyway? Is there a reason why it doesn't?
