We already have enclosing scopes since Python 2.1--this is PEP 227
(http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0227.html).  The proposal is for a
mechanism to allow for re-binding of enclosing scopes which seems like
a logical step to me.  The rest of the scoping semantics would remain
as they are today in Python.
