apparently python has async iterators too, but instead of "for await", they used the syntax "async for" -- i think this was a bad choice.

"for await", to me, clearly indicates that it's a for loop, and that each element will be "await"ed.

"async for" implies a kind of overall for-loop that is also somehow a generator by itself. it doesn't seem consistent with the other uses of async and await.

- here comes a 32-byte value!
- i put a zero byte in front, just in case you might think it's a negative number!
- here comes another 32-byte value!
- same thing with that zero byte!

i added 8 bytes to your 64 byte signature because VALUE ADD!

i guess a lot of desk organizers are clear/translucent because people like to look at their stuff?

spoiler: i want an organizer to hide the clutter, not show it off
