Thanks a lot Alex (and Hrvoje) for taking the time to decipher my post and
pointing to the obvious getattr.

This may be syntactic shugar but I was too much focused on not being able to
write:

Foo.[Fubar].[Toto].[Tata]

rather than

getattr(getattr(getattr(Foo, Fubar), Toto), Tata)

to walk an object hierarchy.

I've grown so fond of Python that I've come to expect too much from it :-)
