Sometimes it feels like #Python is nothing but a mountain of syntactic sugar on hash tables.

@gnomon @JordiGH yeah it's literally like tables, and you can implement stuff like classes in a table attached to a table, a .. metatable.

That said, i hope python does better than hash tables? I mean, with classes, how often do you do `getattr(instance, super_arbitrary_thing)`

@jasper @gnomon All the time? I mean, "." is just sugar for "getattr".
