What's your goal?  I'd probably do the dirt simple myself:

class AttrDict(dict):
    def __getattr__(self, attr):
        if attr in self:
            return self[attr]
            raise AttributeError

    def __setattr__(self, attr, value):
        self[attr] = value

d = AttrDict()
d.foo = 'bar'
print d.foo
