David, I'd like to side with you on this - sometimes people do
partitioning of base classes as an implementation detail, and you're
just interested in exporting a top level class to python, without
worrying where its member functions are originating. To me it seems
that exposing all of the base classes to python, like Nicodemus is
suggesting, is viable but less elegant.
