Why is it "new concept"? Sure, nested scope is not ancient stuff, but
it's been out for a while. I don't think other people would call it

I have counted 7 messages in the thread, so far. How come no one
mentioned the keyword "closure"?

Just wondering. Because searching the Python newsgroup with keyword
"closure" turns up many previous threads on this subject.
