Just a tip. if <attrname> is an attribute full of values (such as long
lists or dictionaries), or with long values (such as e-mails held for
approval 'cause they were too big), you won't be able to do much with the
values. One suggestion is to type:
>>> type(m.<attribute>)
to discover what type of attribute it is.

Well, unless I'm mistaken (which I usually am :-), you can do pretty much
anything, as long as you don't call "m.Save()".
