Thank you for your assistance. I apologize for not examining the reference manual closely. 
Is there any way to produce the desired behavior? I currently work around the local name binding like this:

def x():
     a = [False]
     def y():
         print a[0]
         a[0] = True
     return y

However, using a list here seems awkward.
Thank you for your attention.
