Element bug?(ElementTree)

I don't know if it's a bug? Try below code:
>>from elementtree.ElementTree import Element
a = Element('a')
if a:
... print 'hhhh'
...
>>a.__len__()
0

You can see if I test a, the result will be False. I don't know if
it's an expected result, but this thing has beaten me some times.
