That's right. I thought that int as object will stay the same object
after += but with another integer value.
My intuition said me that int object which represent integer value
should behave this way.
But by design python's integer behave differently.
I fond that NumPy's 1-d types behaves as objects with mutable values.
>>> from numpy import *
>>> a += 1
