True - and that's somewhat cleaner since it doesn't expose the internals 
of the descriptor protocol. OTHO, it can lead to strange results with 
callables not implementing the descriptor protocol:

class MyCallable(object):
   def __init__(self, name):
     self.name = name
   def __call__(self):
     print self.name

fun = MyCallable('gizmo')

class Foo(object):

f = Foo()
f.fun = types.MethodType(fun, f, Foo)

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/tmp/python-17437zds.py", line 16, in <module>
TypeError: __call__() takes exactly 1 argument (2 given)
