The sticking point is going to be that we don't want to recompute the cumulative weights for every call to weighted_choice.

So there should probably be two functions:

  cw = make_cumulate_weights(weight_list) 
  x = choice(choice_list, cw)

This is similar to what was done with string.maketrans() and str.translate().
