I would generally agree with you, except that when monkey patching
self.method = new.instancemethod(other.method.im_func,
... is a bit more understandable than...
self.metbod = type(other.method)(other.method.im_func,
... at least in the examples that I've seen. Never mind that new is
documented in the standard library documentation, but the types are not.
