Just and FYI, I'm deep into the thesis pipeline, and this little crazy idea
is something I plan to do after that nagging little thesis on garbage
collection gets finished... I think the small optimizable Python subset is
someting I could bite off without too much problem... 

In anycase I got the impression that the entire class system was built on top
of dictionaries, or did I misunderstand how things actually work?
