At least one group of highly trained Django developers was tripped up by believing my old documentation, instead of inferring that it must have been slightly imprecise because of the section of documentation it was in.
values_list() call returns a
QuerySet subclass that can be evaluated to a list of thingies. It doesn't actually return a list (you can further filter and slice and dice it before retrieving the values). We should fix the slightly inaccurate language to avoid this happening again.
