Well, they are, but they are just not well integrated. Which they, the 
docs themselves, admit. The keyword is 'new-style classes'. Have a read 
or two:
<http://www.python.org/doc/newstyle.html>

Maybe this is a better intro, however:
<http://www.geocities.com/foetsch/python/new_style_classes.htm>


Hope that helps.
