You seem to have missed out your example, but I'll guess at what
you're talking about. Correct me if I'm wrong, and we'll move on from

You want to take a sequence of 32 numbers and see if it's exactly the
same sequence as some others. The easiest way to do this is with a
tuple, rather than a list; then you can simply do an equality check,
and they'll be checked recursively. If you want to ask, more simply,
"does this 32-value unit exist in my collection of 256 acceptable
32-value units", then a set will serve you well. You can stuff tuples
of integers into your set, and then query the set for a particular

Does that help at all? If not, guide me to the problem you're actually
solving. :)
