Oh, I wouldn't even attempt that until Python supported
"def object.method():" syntax (like Prothon does).  Using my derive class, 
you could acheieve a similar effect though:

 class my_derived_class(derive):
     def some_new_function(self):
         <do stuff>
 my_derived_object = my_derived_class(my_prototype_object)

You aren't able to insert function definitions after the derived object is 
created using this method (something I imag, but most function 
definitions are premeditated anyways.
