Checked it out briefly - I saw that you "snagged" something from xmlrpclib,
namely (a part of) the dynamic proxy. How does this proxy work? Does it
deal with direct attribute access (object.attribute) and nested
lookups (object.attribute.subattr.method() )?

I still have to fix Pyro's dynamic proxy -- it can't yet deal with
nested lookups. So I was wondering if I could "snag" some stuff from
here :-)
