​What exactly are you proposing? Getting rid of AttributeError masking? I'm
talking about applying an old design decision (AttributeError masking)​ in
`callable`. Doesn't seem useful to talk about not having exception making
unless you have a plan to remove that from other places (that's even harder
than fixing `callable` IMO) just to fix this inconsistent handling in

Unless you think having inconsistent handling is OK. I do not think it's
OK. There should be the same rules for attribute access everywhere.
