I worry that that's going to lead more people astray thinking this has
something to do with contextlib, which it really doesn't (it's much more
closely related to threading.local()).

Regarding DynamicAnything, I certainly saw it and didn't like it -- the
only place where I've ever seen dynamic scoping was in Emacs Lisp, and I
believe was first shown to me as anti-pattern thirty years ago.
