no, "it" refers to the bound method object, as 7stud would have realized if
he'd read the entire paragraph.  here's the relevant portion:

   /.../ a method object is created by packing (pointers to) the instance object
   and the function object just found together in an abstract object: this is the
   method object. When the method object is called with an argument list, it
   is unpacked again /.../
