Using a module level instance seems the right way to go. I'm trying
something like this.

mymodule.py:
class MyDict( dict):
   ...
   ...
MyDict = MyDict()


othermodule.py:
import mymodule
print mymodule.MyDict

I'm running into a slight problem however that my run-time defined logging
level is not correctly set until after the module has initialized,
preventing any log messages from showing up. Is there a pythonic way to get
around this? I'm thinking of adding a module init routine, but I don't feel
like this is clean solution.
