Indeed, I realized that it does allow overriding all kinds of behaviour 
and as such may be dangerous for the unwary.  But isn't it possible to 
do so anyway?

One way to increase safety would be to require that the "other" list is 
not a subclass (PyList_CheckExact(v)) so that no unexpected behaviour 
occurs for it, and so allow the 'target' list to simply override "swap" 
if it deems it unacceptable.

At any rate, I thought I'd share this idea and accept that it needs 
discussion. I'll start a thread on python-ideas.
