A very edifying document.  Indeed, in "Nutshell" Alex M. mentions your 
paper at the end of his high-level explanation of the MRO.  In my infinite 
wisdom, I had chosen not to follow up by reading about the nitty-gritty 
details :-)

As I mentioned in another post, it wasn't my lack of understanding of the 
MRO per se that tripped me up.  I somehow managed to know that in Alex's 
example, an instance of the D class would have an MRO of essentially (D, C, 
B, A), and yet not realize that this was strangly similar to the output of 
the example.  D'oh!
