[Python-ideas] variable binding [was lambda decorators]

Of course a much simpler decorator is possible:

for i in range(10):
    def my_func(i):
        print i
# Implementing bind is left as an exercise for the reader

i is passed to bind as a keyword argument, which it saves and later
passes to my_func as a keyword argument.  No default values are used
so it's no longer considered "ugly".  It will also give an error if
somebody accidentally passes in i themselves.

I stand by my previous comment on it not being worthwhile.
