> Yes, you can. The only difference is that access by index to fields are 
slow. So if you don't need fast access by index but only by name then using 
__slots__ is enough. Recordclass is actually a fixed array with named 
access to the elements in the same manner as namedtuple is a actually a 
tuple with named access to it's elements.
