No. You can't "update" global dictionary at the call point. 

This is the issue I am very much familiar with. You can find 2 posts from me
with pretty much the same content.

The only viable solution I found is to *compile* the script first before
executing it. If I do this global dictionary is bound to the class methods and
you code will work fine.
