> What exactly are you proposing? Getting rid of AttributeError masking?

That isn't really a practical thing to consider, so no. :)  Instead
I'm suggesting there isn't a lot of justification to change the
behavior of callable.  *If* we were to change anything I'd suggest
disallowing AttributeError from a descriptor's getter during special
method lookup.  However, I'm not suggesting that either.  We should
simply leave callable alone (and consistent with the other helpers
that inspect the "special" *capability* of objects).
