It works for complex numbers:
...in a rather surprising way:
>>> f() + 5j.real
I would have expected it to be 0.0, because I would have expected the
'.' to have precedence over the '+', but it hasn't. apparantly.
Or has it?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'int' and 'type'
I would call it inconsistent:
3+4j.real means (3+4j).real
3+4j.__class__ means 4+(4j).__class__
Enough ignorance from my side? :-)

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of
unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the
military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of
misplaced power exists and will persist.
