the annoying, verbose self

The issue of lexical scope still looms large on the horizon. How does
one distinguish between attributes (as scoped by the "with" clause),
local/global variables, and function/method calls? There doesn't seem
to be an easy way. You'd need multiple passes over the data to
determine various scopes -- and for what, to save typing a few
characters? And even if implemented, it would mean hiding the
complexity of the resolution, which is not a good thing.
