What's the idea being discussed? AIUI there's no need or request to
change the language/stdlib, but maybe I'm misreading. This is a cute
showcase of how a class namespace can be used to gather multiple
functions together and build a property with them; it already works
without any changes. So it's a great thing to discuss, but with no
changes being proposed, it's not really an idea for the language. On
python-list, there'll be more people, many of whom wouldn't think to
hang out here, but could still appreciate (a) this cool way of doing
properties, and (b) the more general notion that a decorated class or
metaclass can be used for this kind of very powerful namespacing.
Ah, now I understand. I did automatically assume that Greg was proposing adding this to the stdlib or something, but maybe I only assumed that because it was in the list.
