Patrick> ... what about something like: >>> None.__class__.__base__ <type 'object'> Patrick> Or does this not apply because None is at the front?
I suspect it does apply.
I doubt it's used much, but what would happen to types.NoneType? If None is a keyword, how will you generate it, or will it disappear when that happens?
Nothing would change. None would be a literal keyword, but its value in an expression would be the same as before, so None.__class__ would work. Compare "foo".__class__.
