Note that L[:] and L[:] = [] are well-known idioms for making a copy of 
a list and emptying the list respectively. (For dictionaries we have 
D.copy() and D.clear().) Someone looking at x[:] or x[:] = [] should 
immediately recognize a list copy or clear operation.  Having to think 
of whether x may be a dictionary would make such code very confusing.
