[Python-ideas] Good uses for staticmethod

There is no module or namespace keyword in python. One module consists at
least one file.
But sometimes I'm too lazy to create multiple files, or I simply cannot,
e.g. when writing a plugin for something.
I write staticmethod as a replacement of module function in these cases.
