Thanks for the responses -- I should have mentioned that I looked at
the getattr() function, but as I instantiate the key handler and
command handler classes in a list (like handlers = [command_handler(),
keyboard_handler()], I'm unsure how to reference that class instance
in the getattr in a straightforward way (short of keeping track of
each instance's position in the handlers list). Is there a typical way
of doing that?
