__builtin__.__dict__['dynamic_property']

Hi, I was browsing through the source code and came across the following line:

Code:
__builtin__.__dict__['dynamic_property'] = lambda func: func(None)
in calibre/__init__.py

I'm curious why this was done like this instead of creating a separate module to be imported?

Because it is used in lots of places. THere are a few extra code-wide globals calibre uses.
