It's not really sugar. But I think you mean something like this:
>>> class A: pass
>>> type is type(A)
So the closest you get for functions will be:
>>> def f(): pass
Try help(type(f)) to see how to use it to create a function object.
The problem is that you need to provide a code object, and the easiest
way to create a code object is to use a def statement :)
