I'd suggest you just write your own function to do this. I consider

I agree there -- if you want something that can be used like this -- use a dict in the first place :-)

Eric: what do you think about adding a "shallow" (or "deep") flag to dataclasses.asdict()
 that would then upack only the top-level dataclass?

I'm not opposed to it. Since I can't make asdict/astuple go away, I might as well make them more useful.
