I think I already saw a response to this posting, but it just showed up
in c.l.p on my system...

Your book is probably wrong, since dictionaries don't have a __dict__ 
method.  In 2.2 their *classes* do, although dir() still doesn't show

Perhaps you misread it.  What exactly did it say?  Any more importantly,
what goal do you have in mind.  Sometimes there are alternatives that
aren't the first thing that comes to mind.
