Looks like this doesn't work on internal types. You can call it on string, 
after importing string, but I didn't found a way to call it on a string 
object:

>>> a="test"
>>> a.__dict__
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute '__dict__'
>>> string.__dict__
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'string' is not defined
>>> import string
>>> string.__dict__
[ snipped long list...]
>>> a.__dict__
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute '__dict__'
