There are very constructive discussions in terms how this could be
handled and which turns out not really elegant. Your justification
could be used to reject features like descriptors, decorators, meta
classes, and you can use that reasoning even just to say "let's all go
java". This is not the pythonic for me at all. the burden, is not only
on the savings of a few chars, it is on how easy/difficult it can be
interpreted and understood.

Please let's be constructive and be specific, this kind of conclusion
without any reasoning behind it not only makes it weak, this is not
the healthy type of discussion at all.
