It's not. It's a case of ArbitraryOvercomplexification(tm).

The pythonic way is to use inheritence and make the base class abstract
by raising a NotImplementedError in it's __init__ (cf Inyeol Lee's
answer and my small correction)

python -c "print '@'.join(['.'.join([w[::-1] for w in p.split('.')]) for
p in 'onurb at xiludom.gro'.split('@')])"
