I think recent boost versions may have improved (v2) lists, need to check.

from http://lists.berlios.de/pipermail/mapnik-users/2009-April/001877.html

"""
3. Real lists. The python bindings make heavy use of append() methods

that give the impression of regular python list objects under the

hood. Generally, appending a layer or style to a mapnik.Map actually

makes a deeper change, and subsequent attempts to reorder the list or

remove items fail. I think it would be interesting for mapnik.Map to

be a fully-editable and introspectable python object, with plain old

lists and dictionaries where possible, instead of a mystery Boost

thing. The to_mapnik methods I wrote above are a fairly clumsy

implementation of late compilation
