This will break code... I'm not sure whether it's worth going
down this path just for the sake of being able to define
functions within functions.

Wouldn't it be a better idea to somehow add native acqusition
to Python's objects ?

We already have a slot which implements the "contains"
relationship. All we'd need is a way for a contained
object to register itself with the container in a 
way that doesn't produce cycles.
