Of course, more changes would be needed: docs, the test suite, and some simplifications to the instance method object implementation in classobject.c.
Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
Code that currently does 'aClass.aMethod.im_func' in order to access the function object would break, as would code that inspects 'im_self' to determine whether a method is a class or instance method. (Although code of the latter sort would already break with static methods, I suppose.)
Code of the latter sort wouldn't break with the change. We'd still have bound methods.
