What is equivalent of *this = that in python?

I have a distributed application using xmlrpc and I'd like for a local
object to sync itself to match a remote version of the object. I realize
that I can copy all the attributes from the remote object to the local
object, but that seems like an ugly solution. There must be a better way...

Thanks,
