That's actually impossible to tell.  The period prefix used with the "with"
clause came first, which comes from Python 3.0.  Then the capitalization was
independent I think.  But I used to Program in Ruby so the whole concept of
being able to tell scope by just looking at the vars might be from Ruby.

In any case, if it came before, it must be credited.
