In a recent thread it was pointed out that you can also bind to s function
of a specific object instance. Out of the top of my head:

Class A:
    def printarg( self, arg ):
        print arg

anA = a()
functionBoundToInstance = anA.printarg

functionBoundToInstance("Hello Python")

Hello Python

this would work also for widgets, command = aWidget.activate

Sorry didnot try it out yet :-)
