magical expanding hash

The point of this exercise is to compare how either ruby or python can
implement perl's default behavior when dealing with hashes.  Since
these are bread and butter of scripting, having a MEH class handy can
enable fast semantically equivalent translation.  This can be
beneficial for demonstrating feasibility of migrating to python.
Instead of debating philosophical justifications, I rather wonder
what's the most appropriate pythonic way to solve the problem as stated.
