You can protect against this, too, but it does show that it's *really* 
hard to get restricting code right...I'm of the opinion that it's not 
really worth it -- you should just use OS protections.


class foostr(str):
  def __eq__(self, other):
   return True

def have_at_it(immutable_facet, readonly_facet):
   getattr(immutable_facet, foostr('append'))(5)
   print immutable_facet
