As a concept, it's possibly not obscure (although I'm introducing
Python to colleagues at work, who are used to VB and SQL, and for whom
"object" is a fairly novel term!) But it took me a while to figure out
how it related to what's going on here. I got it, and it's now
obvious, but that initial "huh?" feeling is probably worth watching
out for :-)
