I'm just going to presume this issue has been around a long time, but I think that's a pretty safe presumption.

Accepting a general sequence instead of only a list would reasonable, and I'd support a fix that caused the code to accept a general sequence (or any iterable) by calling list() on the passed-in value, starting with 3.8.

The patch provided looks good for versions in maintenance.  (It would also be fine for 3.8 if there's no interest in generalizing the code to accept arbitrary iterables).
