From the pep8 this is the right way of checking if a list is empty .
Might be worth referencing in the commit message. "For sequences,
(strings, lists, tuples), use the fact that empty sequences are false."
The check if the list is None is surprising as well actually, as the
list should never be None.

Patch looks good, acked as well by me.
