This is nice, but this does not explain the why of your code snippet.

of course !-)

I may miss the point, but what about:

class A(object):
   def __init__(self, x):
     self.x = x

   def _getx(self):
     if callable(self._x):
       return self._x()
     else:
       return self._x

   def _setx(self, x):
     self._x = x

   x = property(_getx, _setx)

a = A(4)
b = A(lambda : a.x+5)
a.x = 2
print "b.x is", b.x

<have-fun with="lambdas">
#... and now for the fine part:
del a
b.x

But what, your solution behaves just the same.
</have-fun>

I don't have any reason to doubt it. But do you know what not 
programming is ?-)
