from where are you getting the source code for those code objects?

from the example below, it sure looks like using callable objects and
argument binding is a "better way" to do it.  for the simplest cases,
you can use a plain lambda to delay evaluation:

    >>> obj1 = lambda: foo("#expression1#")
    >>> obj1()
    >>> obj2 = lambda: foo("#expression2#")
    >>> obj2()
