I like that comment... "just do it"...
I find this is also true for most other things
that you want to do in Python.

"How do I create a mapping between a person's last
name and the list of telephone numbers he/she can be
reached at?" -- "umm.. just do it?"

{ "de Jong": ['234234', '34562363'] }

or whatever ;-)

I'm starting with Python and I find it really great!

It's... natural!

.... c, d = a()
c 'value 1' d 'value 2' e = a()
e

('value 1', 'value 2')
