Dot notation, e.g. 'foo.bar', is parsed by the interpreter as "access
the attribute named 'bar' of the object 'foo'". Objects have
attributes either by virtue of the class having them, or the object
getting them assigned after creation.

Can you describe what you would change in the above, or can you
re-word your request based on these facts?
