I've written AttributeDict a fair number of times. Each time I write it from scratch, which is only a few lines. And I only make a silly wore about 50% of the time when I do so.

I wonder if a separate type in collections might be a more natural way to get the desired effect. I do recognize that such a type is very similar to SimpleNamespace, so get Raymond's concern with making a new thing for trivial change. But the *name* of the class should help with it's purpose IMO.

Yes, I get that.  Just want to point-out that working with heavily nested dictionaries (typical for JSON) is no fun with square brackets and quotation marks.
