Python doesn't do call by reference. Nor does it do call by value. Please 
pay no attention to anyone who says it does.

Instead, read this:

http://effbot.org/zone/call-by-object.htm

and possibly this as well:

http://effbot.org/zone/python-objects.htm

After you've read that, if you still have questions, please ask.
