Interesting! Although the example with a len() and mutable default arguments
obscured the utility, I thought. Also, why limit it to one assignment?
Liked Terry's suggestions for name. The name that jumped into my brain as I
read was a reuse of the locals() or globals() callable with key words, that
would change their behavior to what you suggest.
