[1, 2, 3, 4, 5].depth       => 1
[1, [2, [3, 4], 5]].depth   => 3
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].depth => 4

[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel_until(1) => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel_until(2) => [1, 2, 3, [4, 5]]
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel_until(3) => [1, 2, [3, [4, 5]]]
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel_until(4) => [1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]]

[1, [2, [3, 4], 5]].peel(1)   => [1, 2, [3, 4], 5]
[1, [2, [3, 4], 5]].peel(2)   => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel(1) => [1, 2, [3, [4, 5]]]
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel(2) => [1, 2, 3, [4, 5]]
[1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]].peel(3) => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
