Sometimes, you don't want to prefix whatever you are sharing in your thread local with
g. for some reason. To solve this problem, you can create your own local-type proxy objects with:
from werkzeug.local import LocalProxy whatever = LocalProxy(lambda: g.whatever)
Of course, this can be used for other things besides just
from werkzeug.local import LocalProxy method = LocalProxy(lambda: request.method)
Now that Werkzeug 0.6.1 is out, it's really more of an AnythingProxy than just a LocalProxy.
