Hi Reza,

yes, I'd thought of that, but I can't get the function's code, I tried 
the inspect module but
it only works of the code is written to disk; I'd rather not have to 
first write the code to disk just to be able to turn it into a string 
and feed it to python -c. Any ideas on how I could do this?
