Hmmm. It seems that the problem isn't to do with the fact that it works, or how to apply it; the problem is with *how* it works. 

Making it an idiom means that too many will use it without knowing why it works which could lead to later maintenance issues. I think a better description of how it works may be needed for the docs.

Unfortunately my description of the how at was not written with the docs in mind, but you are welcome to any part or the whole, for the Python docs.
