Why do you think the data is copied? Both viewers will hold a reference
to the same data object:

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> class d(object):
.... a = 1
.... b = 2
.... c = 3
....
>>> d1 = d()
>>> d1.a
1
>>> class view1(object):
.... def __init__(self, data):
.... self.data = data
.... def data(self):
.... return self.data
....
>>> class view2(object):
.... def __init__(self, data):
.... self.data = data
.... def data(self):
.... return self.data
....
>>> v1 = view1(d1)
>>> v2 = view2(d1)
>>> v2.data.b
2
>>> v2.data.b = 4
>>> v2.data.b
4
>>> v1.data.b
4
>>>
