that's surly anachronism :)

o.__class__ is a little more typing and will surely scare newbies.
moreover, type(x) and x.__class__ can return different things
(you can fool __class__, but not type()).

for my part, i'm fine with any form that makes a distinction between
the metaclass "type" and the inquire-type "type".
call it o.__class__, gettype() or typeof(), just don't mix that with
the metaclass
