Something based on the above might be more what you are looking for, but just to give another option.

You can leave the hairy function in a module with it referencing all of the module-level (global) vars and just import that module as a variable and manipulate those module level vars to override them.

So if you have a with:

frob = 42
other = 23

def somefunc():
    return frob + other

You can then do the below:

>>> hairy_mod = __import__('hairy')
>>> hairy_mod.somefunc()
>>> hairy_mod.frob = 88
>>> hairy_mod.somefunc()


This might actually allow me to use the original code without changing it at all. Thanks Thomas!
