We will need to see about that, eventually there will be need for a new type 
with lists for both key and content type instead of just one type. ListType 
will certainly be useful for JS' Array and similar things though.

In that context I could probably upstream Python's IndexedContainer and it 
could gain a subclass with typed keys, analogous to ListType / MapType. I 
think that would be closer to what JS needs.
