Sorry, I missed the cls parameter in the definition of utility().
def utility(cls, arg):
value = utility(???, arg)
What should be passed as the first argument to utility() if the Spam
class (as well as its subclasses) is not defined still?
Maybe there is a use case for calling the staticmethod descriptor.
Although in this rare case I would apply the staticmethod decorator
after using the function in the class body.
value = utility(arg)
utility = staticmethod(utility)
But I don't see a use case for calling the classmethod descriptor.
