>This whole business with the self; it is not elegant.

This is an entirely subjective matter, elegance. Take
the penchant of many windows programmers using C++ who
put m_ before all their member variables. This is really
just the programmer working around ambiguity. In my mind,
*that* is inelegant.

In python 'm_' is spelled 'self'.
