Sorry for double posting, but in this way it seems I can't use
instance method inside the classmethod. Probably it is the right
behavior, but if I use this @classmethod style to simplify the
__init__ method, now I should move code from instance method inside
the classmethods.

In this way I'm kinda mixing things. I mean, if to construct an object
I have to use different methods, what can I do? Or am I missing
something, as usual?
