Excellent.
Will it also fix this particularity of ExtensionClass:

>>> from ExtensionClass import Base
... class A(Base):
...   def foo(self):
...     self.gee
...   def bar(self):
...     del self.gee
... 
>>> a=A()
>>> a.foo()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "<stdin>", line 3, in foo
AttributeError: gee
>>> a.bar()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "<stdin>", line 5, in bar
KeyError: gee

I.e., the fact that KeyError is raised whereas a normal class would
raise AttributeError.
