As Guido pointed out it has some resemblance to how import works, but I 
also think there is resemblance to the context of how global is used.  So 
if it is made into a keyword, could it work like the global keyword?

    class A(object):
        def f(self):
            def inner():
            	super f
            	return 'A' + f()

            print inner()
