Because i lives in the namespace of class A, and j lives in that of
instance v. If Python cannot find the name in the instance-namespace,
it looks for it in the namespace of the class. Very helpfull, because 
you can keep the common data in the class-space, and the data that
are specific for a given instance, in the instance-space.
