[BEGINNER] meta-functions

A simple question from a newbie, sorry.

I have functions defined normally, def fname(arg1,arg2):
and also represented as tuples (fname, arg1, arg2),
to use them by apply(fname, (arg1,arg2)) - no problem.

How do I make a comparison:  fname == 'string' ?
I found that I could use repr(fname) and parse the
resulting string, but I consider this ugly.
Is there a standard function to return a function name
as a string?

I'm restricted to Python 1.5.2.
I'm not on the list, please reply to me.
