Hi,

How about this:

Given these two files,

## foo.py
def __foo():
	print "Foo"

def bar():
	print "Bar"

## bar.py
import foo
class Foo:
	self.f = foo.__foo  # Create an alias for foo.__foo
	self.b = foo.bar    # Create an alias for foo.bar


>>> import bar
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "bar.py", line 3, in ?
    class Foo:
  File "bar.py", line 4, in Foo
    self.f = foo.__foo
AttributeError: _Foo__foo

If I comment out self.f = foo.__foo all works fine.  What am I doing wrong
here?

Thanks,
Scott
