Yes, but this is still better than hasattr() which eats all exceptions. 
I think eating AttributeErrors is fine because to the user of 'ob', it 
would seem that ob.attr wouldn't exist anyway if it threw an 
AttributeError (even if that exception was about something else, it's 
still an AttributeError).

I suggest doing

   marker = object()
   return getattr(ob, name, marker) is marker

rather than

   return hasattr(ob, name)
