__dict__ as a property is documented as an exception to the "no code execution" claim.

The patch is not sufficient - instances may have a class member "__dict__" whilst still having an instance __dict__. Alternatively the "__dict__" property may be provided by a base class and so not available in "type(obj).__dict__" but still be provided by a property.

I don't think there is any general way to tell whether fetching obj.__dict__ will get an instance dictionary or fetch a "__dict__" member from the class or a base-class... (Hence the documented exception.)
