Keep in mind that "test" is a standard Python function.
Any standard Python function evaluates all of its arguments before
the function is called.
That's why the "false" part is evaluated even though the "condition" is

Use Python's "and" and "or" operators to get real conditional

Rumours say that Python will finally (probably with Python 2.5)
grow a conditional operator -- lately overdue...
Then the need for "test" and the "and/or" hackery will end...
