Could it also be that he would like to have a base class? Cause that's
what It sounds like to me!

class Base:
   def __init__(self):
      self.address = "address"
      self.status = 1 //use numbers instead of strings :)

class Person(Base):
   def __init__(self):
      Base.__init__(self)
      # now you have the self.address, self.status
