See my post on Mar 2 about "automating assignment of class variables".
I got no answers, maybe I wasn't clear enough ... :(

I need to define lots of variables. The variable names are often identical.
The problem is that if I put such a code into a function ... no, I'm not going
to pass anything to a function to get it returned back. I just want to get
lots of variables assigned, that all. If I put them into module, it get's
exectued only once unless I do reload. And I'd have to use:
"from some import *", because mainly I'm interrested in assigning to self:
self.x = "blah"
self.y = "uhm"

I'm newbie, sure.
