Locals, no. But builtins, yes. For instance, __import__.
So your proposal suddently has to deal with looking up _only_ locals,
not globals or builtins.
I have asked this indirectly, and Jeff Epler's asked it more
obviously, so, to restate it:
Have you actually got a concrete, written down proposal? Have you
worked through how it might work, and what the impact on the language
might be? I was hoping that you'd sit down and do what Bengt Richter
did and posted to the newsgroup - worked out how this stuff works,
under the hood, so that you weren't just hand-waving. Oh well.
