def unique(s):
r"""Return a list of the elements in s, but without duplicates.
For example, ``unique([1,2,3,1,2,3])`` is some permutation of ``[1,2,3]``,
``unique("abcabc")`` some permutation of ``["a", "b", "c"]``, and
``unique(([1, 2], [2, 3], [1, 2]))`` some permutation of
``[[2, 3], [1, 2]]``.
For best speed, all sequence elements should be hashable. Then
``unique()`` will usually work in linear time.
If not possible, the sequence elements should enjoy a total
ordering, and if ``list(s).sort()`` doesn't raise ``TypeError`` it's
assumed that they do enjoy a total ordering. Then ``unique()`` will
usually work in :math:`\mathcal{O}(N\log_2(N))` time.
If that's not possible either, the sequence elements must support
equality-testing. Then ``unique()`` will usually work in quadratic
time.
