No, the check hasn't been removed - technically speaking. In Python 3.0 
the behavior of the method descriptor has been changed. 
aclass.somemethod doesn't give you an instancemethod wrapper any more. 
It's a plain function object like aclass.somemethod.im_func in the 2.x 
series. Only instances return a bound instancemethod wrapper in Python 3.0.
