Don't you think classes are as easy as variables?
Start right with objects, before they even know there were
non-OO-approaches in the past. (now, i read several
posting from functional programming guys stating Haskell
etc.would provide all kinds of OO, so i think they won't
backstab me, although i have no notion of what OO means
in a functional programming context. I also read that
Python is a version of Scheme with a funny syntax. So i think
they don't really hate OO.)
