No, it should be self.y()
It could be a.y(self), and that would work for many cases, but that
isn't really what you want.

It's easy to find out in the interactive interpreter.
>>> class a:
... def y(self):
... print 1
>>> b = a()
<unbound method a.y>
<method a.y of a instance at 80a67e8>
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: unbound method must be called with class instance 1st
Or, of course, one could read the documentation or tutorial. This is
pretty well explained, iirc.
