[Baypiggies] Question on Python's MRO...

C's MRO is (C, A, B, object), and method lookup happens in that order. So
if both A and B define a method m, but C doesn't, A.m gets used.

For old-style classes the lookup order would still be (C, A, B).

Maybe you can clarify *what* is happening from right to left in your
understanding? Code speaks!
