I saw where you said this was a bit of a joke.  But yes, sometimes it's not 
all that obvious what order things should be in.  Which was your point, and 
people new to python do have to look up what order the isinstance arguments 
are in.

I'm just wondering if there is a rule of thumb that we can apply that works 
for other python functions.
