[New-bugs-announce] [issue12166] object.__dir__

Michael Foord report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Michael Foord <michael at voidspace.org.uk>:

Implementing a custom __dir__ method is fiddly because there is no way of obtaining the standard list of attributes that dir would return.

Moving the relevant parts of the dir implementation into object.__dir__ would allow a custom __dir__ to obtain the "standard list" by calling up to the base class.
