If you would like to automatically assign arguments to methods
to the attributes of an object, you can do so by prefixing those
local variable names with a a single leading underscore '_',
which will be stripped from the instance variable (_x becomes x).

class Foo(object):
    def __init__(self, _x, _y, _z):
        InitAttrs(self, locals())

AutoSlots further allows you to automatically generate __slots__
for your classes, pulling the variables which need to be slots
from the arguments to the __init__ method on your class.

class Goo(object):
    __metaclass__ = AutoSlots
    def __init__(self, _x, _y, _z):
        InitAttrs(self, locals())

>>> x = Goo(1,2,3)
>>> [i for i in dir(x) if i[:1] != '_']
['x', 'y', 'z']
>>> x.a = 7
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'Goo' object has no attribute 'a'
