PEP 3000 - Core language says
(http://www.python.org/peps/pep-3000.html#core-language) :

- Support only new-style classes; classic classes will be gone

Any possibility to add something like

from __future__ import new_style_classes

to have newly defined classes implicitly derive from 'object' (I
understand this will be the implicit behavior when classic classes go
away in Py3.0).
