No time to investigate further, but all your examples used classic
classes instead of new-style classes; I'm pretty sure that new-style
classes will more closely emulate the way functions work.  There's also
the wrinkle I didn't mention that functions use a dict proxy IIRC.

This is Python.  We don't care much about theory, except where it intersects 
with useful practice.  --Aahz
