Yes. At least, this is what the documentation sais, and it seems to be true
as far as I can see.

Ah, OK, I never did any really thorough research in that department.  I
have, in any case, gotten the same results as you, so in that case you
probably need to call Implicits.__getattr__ directly.
I haven't seen any negative effects of not doing this, though.

I'm not well versed enough in how to write python stuff in c, so I don't
understand it very well. Just well enough to not be able to find Implicits
__getattr__. :-)

Yup, much better way. __getattr__ is more for if you have a dictionary which
data you want as attributes.
