I think I have figured out a difference between how my dir() based
and the inspect.getmembers(module, inspect.isclass) works. In my
implementation only the
classes defined in the module are considered, while the inspect
functionality returns also the
imported classes. Am I seeing wrong results on this? (cause the
documentation is not very clear
about the inspect part).
