[_] Python Question

Hi _,

I know there's a few Python goons on here so... is there a better way
of doing this in Python?

attributes = {}

attribute_data = mark.fetchall()

for i in attribute_data:

       if i[1] in attributes:
               attributes[i[1]].append(i[0])
       else:
               attributes[i[1]] = [i[0]]

Given my experience with Python so far, there is probably some epic
shortcut for doing this.

Cheers,

Andy
