That may very well be true, but we're not talking about those evils here. 
We're talking about a simple factory technique for creating a number of 
identical objects in a loop.

Depending on your definition of metaprogramming, either:

(1) this either isn't metaprogramming at all, merely programming and no 
more scary than populating a dict at runtime; or


(2) if you mean what you say, that means no decorators, no closures, no 
introspection ("reflection" in Java terms), no metaclasses (other than 
type), no use of descriptors (other than the built-in ones), no template-
based programming, no source-code generators. No namedtuples, Enums, or 
data-classes.
