It depends on what you mean by "this"; binding a function (or class)
to an object as an attribute, or using a decorator to achieve it ? I
find a decorator quite elegant in this case, although the use case
itself is admittedly much less common in Python than, say, Javascript
(with ``obj.property = function(x,y) {...}`` expressions everywhere).
