Dynamic scoping

I've searched the archives of this group as well as the net, about the
advantages and disadvantages of lexical vs dynamic scoping. I'm
convinced by the arguments that lexical scoping is what people want
most of the time.

However, under some circumstances, people might want to use dynamic
scoping. Is there a reason why python doesn't support it ? (Unlike
perl ?).
