Bruno, that's the first time I've understood the descriptor protocol, or
even understood *why* the descriptor protocol is important.

Could you please post (a version of) this as a separate article
somewhere? A weblog post, or a new thread in this forum, or in the
documentation? Somewhere that web searches will find it prominently when
searching for the Python descriptor protocol.

Thank you.
