Most of the people(especially newbies) get into OO without knowing what the
language has to offer, and they overdo OO. I have seen some dreaded
code -- especially something as simple as a singleton pattern.

OO is a nice paradigm, but one need not go the OO way for the heck of it.
And moreover , i never said
anything against OO, i just asked the OP to do a self-analysis on where he
stands on the
Python front before venturing in (he should venture in, but before that he
has to get the fundamentals right).
The Python docs themselves give an excellant intro to Classes , and trust
me, i have never gone beyond
this in my py code on the OO front.

But still you can refute me, thats the beauty of the online medium :)
