TIL that you can do the equivalent of a goto in Python by setting f_lineno in the top frame of the stack. I hope that one day I find a sane reason to actually do this, just for the sheer lunacy of the thing.
It's not even a goto. It's like doing a jmp with a mov into the PC, from a high-level language to boot *because you can.*
If you use Python and haven't gotten super-familiar with the data model documentation, you are missing out on a lot of the best stuff. It's second only to reading the interpreter source.
