Yes, in a sense a class statement is just syntactic sugar for what you
wrote. Class statements are a bit more readable, though :-)
As it seems to me, in Perl you have to be an expert to correctly make
a nested data structure like, say, a list of hashes of instances. In
Python, you have to be an idiot not to be able to do it, because you
just write it down. -- Peter Norvig, comp.lang.functional
