Yeah, yeah, yeah, and that was me before I realized that None wasn't so
special after all. :-) :-) I expected the result to be thrown away
instantaneously. In the resulting (possibly private; I don't remember)
discussion, Guido explained it didn't work that way. Now I use 'ignore'
(void is too much like C casting...), and to get the same effect:
ignore = os.system('...')
Of course, normally the ignore get's chucked when you reassign it or the
name space gets deleted.
