[New-bugs-announce] [issue11704] functools.partial doesn't create bound methods

New submission from Alex Gaynor <alex.gaynor at gmail.com>:

This is related to the discussion we had at the PyCon language summit about C vs Python function binding.  If you create a partial instance and put it on a class it doesn't create bound instances.  This behavior is a tad surprising in my view.  At a minimum it'd be nice if the docs mentioned this.
