That's been suggested, and it'll show up in the revised PEP as soon as
it's pushed out to python.org. I'm not Uncle Timmy, but I'll channel
Guido: no chance. I don't particularly like dots-only mechanism, but I
have to agree that it works well enough for one-to-three levels. More
than that is a strong indication of a design that needs reworking.
