Pylint false positives

Actually, that's a very good observation. You should stick with a
smallish kernel of primitives and derive the universe from them.

Anyway, functions as first-class objects are truly foundational in all
high-level programming. In Python programming, I mostly run into
closures through inner classes (as in Java).

Nothing wrong or extraordinary with putting a def statement in a loop,
but populating an object with fields (methods) in a loop is very rarely
a good idea.
