I don't think so.  The classes look much cleaner without it.

+1 from for removing (object) from most examples (except for the descriptor howto).

Thanks Terry.  Yes, I would like to keep (object) in the text of the descriptor how-to.  As you said, it keeps the text compatible.  But also, the explicit inheritance from (object) is an aid to clarity in a document that needs to highlight that attribute access occurs in two forms, object.__getattribute__ and type.__getattribute__.
