Chalk that up to type/class unification:

    % ./python
    Python 2.2a1 (#11, Aug  2 2001, 08:51:55) 
    [GCC 2.96 20000731 (Linux-Mandrake 8.0 2.96-0.48mdk)] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> dir([].__class__)
    ['__add__', '__class__', '__contains__', ..., 'remove', 'reverse', 'sort']
