That's the hard part. SCOOP attaches attributes to *variables*. It
also changes the semantics of function calls based on the values of
those attributes. Part of the power of using SCOOP comes from the
processor detecting when a variable has been declared as having an
attribute is used to reference objects for which the attribute doesn't

I'm not sure how Pythonic that can be made.
