[Python-Dev] Accessing globals without dict lookup

Just a few quick questions before go back into lurcking mode:

Will it still be possible to:
a) install new builtins in the __builtin__ namespace and have them
   available in all already loaded modules right away ?
b) override builtins (e.g. open()) with my own copies 
   (e.g. to increase security) in a way that makes these new
   copies override the previous ones in all modules ?

Also, how does the new scheme get along with the restricted 
execution model ? (I have a feeling that this model needs some
auditing since so many new ways of accessing variables and
attributes were introduced since the days of 1.5.2)
