How's the issue going on?

The situation to mock function's ``__defaults__`` attribute is general, as default argument is determinate after function definition, when we need to test a function such as:

    def access_db(statement, backend=default_db_backend):
        return default_db_backend.execute(statement)

that we must mock ``__defaults__`` attribute if we want to invoke it with default backend.

It has one year past, though I could patch the ``_patch`` class but it's dirty, is the issue a defect can be fixed or unsolvable?
