Sorry for that. Yes, it should have been Magic (I renamed the class after writing it and didn’t pay attention). I just wanted to override the class-variable `magic_number` to give a reason why I don’t ever want to call Magic.__init__ in Foo. If you want, you can have this class instead:

    class Magic:
        def __init__(self):
            raise RuntimeError("Do not initialize this class")

but I figured that this might look a bit artificial...
