Thanks for the clarification.

Note in python __delitem__ is a special method, and rather than this:


you would normally do:

del chain[66]

and this will internally call the special __delitem__ method. This is
much like other special methods, e.g. str(object) will internally do
object.__str__() for you. You wouldn't normally use these double
underscore methods explicitly.

In any case, I don't understand what Thomas intended the __delitem__
to do, and there may be a bug here.
