Have you tried what you're posting?

Python 2.4.3 (#2, Oct  6 2006, 07:52:30)
[GCC 4.0.3 (Ubuntu 4.0.3-1ubuntu5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> class Foo():
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    class Foo():
              ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>> class Foo( object ):
...   self.x = 5
...
Traceback (most recent call last):
