  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

edit: seems both types are working, so this should just be pointed out in the docu

Pretty negligible really, but maybe it should be clarified.

It's common Python practice for lists and tuples to be interchangeable unless otherwise mentioned. In the docs we tend to use one word or the other because "sequence" (the generic term) isn't a Python type and beginners don't realise that we mean list or tuple. It's not worth changing every occurrence of list or tuple to the longer "list or tuple".
