Is there a reason NOT to use them?  If a classic class works fine, what 
incentive is there to switch to new style classes?  I realize it's not 
much effort to put "(object)" after your class name, but I'm lazy and 
don't bother.  I don't see how I've been hurt by that.

Obviously, if there was some feature of new style classes I wanted to 
use, it would be a different story.
