Just a reminder, but I believe that Guido has already pronounced to
the effect that there are only 3 contenders left:

    def foo(a,b,c):

    def foo(a,b,c):


    def foo(a,b,c) [staticmethod]:

Hey - guess what? Writing them out like that, I find that my initial
preference for the 3rd one has gone. To be honest, I no longer have a
strong opinion between the three. In fact, if anything, I'd say I have
a very mild preference for Guido's option (number 2). I dislike the
ambiguity problem with it, though.
