Yes this is a problem, function could not bind their free vars to the class 
namespace without introducing a subtle incompatibility with actual code.

This is exactly this case which would be a problem (your example raise an 
error and is not exactly a "running code"):

G = 1
class A(object) :
    G = 0
    def f(self) : return G
