Richard Jones (who isn't subscribed to this list, else he'd be sending
this message himself) would like it pointed out that the "withhacks"
module does some things very similar to this (by using bytecode
hackery, IIUC). See especially the xkwargs and xargs functions.
>>> from withhacks import xkwargs
WithHack calling a function with extra keyword arguments.
This WithHack captures any local variables created during execution of
the block, then calls the given function using them as extra keyword
>>> def calculate(a,b):
... return a * b
>>> with xkwargs(calculate,b=2) as result:
... a = 5
>>> print result
