I like Mr. Ross' idea.  A keyword would be interesting.  I dislike the
idea of making it "implicit" though, for the simple reason that I
don't think it should be there at all, explicit or implicit.  Also, I
didn't offer to know the best solution, I merely wised to point out
the inelegance.  But I think I'm smart, so I can try.

So work with me here.  Let's iron this out.  This is how I want to use
it.  What's the issue with this?

class Life:
	property = "value"
	def Meaning(argument):
		return property + " " + argument
