Not true. You can certainly use any method of a class in any *functions*
or methods defined in the body of the class. But you can't use them in the
body of the class before they're defined, any more than you can subclass a
class that doesn't exist yet.
I'm not sure where you got the "Python is not a one pass compiler" idea; I
don't recall having seen this meme anywhere before, and I don't see how
it's meaningful anyway.
