   I don't like it for the task. To use I need to import operator, and
I don't know is it faster or slower than lambda; I suspect it's slower but
I am too lazy to test. Using lambda to get a simple attribute seems much
simpler to me.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
