Oh sorry. I thought the OP was asking about having to use self when 
qualifying attributes, or even if he was, I didn't realize it was the 
same principle as my question. And just now I was reading about new 
style classes, and it also seems like a bit of extra typing to have to 
subclass object, but I guess that isn't something that can be implied 
right now either.
