Thank Bruce, I knew about that trick ( I mentioned flattening the
generator ), I just thought the command reference of the docs should
correctly indicate what is returned ( Generator not list ), or it should
return an object implementing the remaining list interfaces ( len,  ).
As it is, one of the first things I tried was to get the link object by
subscripting with  and the length with len, and then had to go and
figure out in the shell why that didn't work. Minor inconvenience, but
still a less than optimal user experience that could be avoided by a
quick correction in the docs.
Thanks for the hard work Titus! I'm really looking forward to the growth
of Twill, it's great to have one tool I can use for simple automated
browsing with or without the test harness. =)
