What I do miss sometimes is the ability to inject the contents of a
dictionary into locals. For example, when I get the results of a
database query in a list of dictionaries or named tuples, I would like
to do something like
for <locals> in sql('select name, age from students'):
I can achieve that with hacks like
for x in sql('select name, age from students'):
but I don't think this is guaranteed to work and it is ugly and inefficient.
