can i make a suggestion?  add comments to those tests explaining what they
do in fairly boring, introductory detail (ie "we are injecting a value in
... because ...").

also, explain "ch" (class hierarchy) or, if it's just a meaningless module
name, use

from ... import Person

because i thought it was something important and now think it's noise and
if its noise it wasted my time.  i know "Person" is the kind of class used
in examples, but i am unsure if "ch" is something special your system
needs or not.

i was going to argue that ioc isn't needed in python because the
motivation for it in java - that you need a more concise configuration
language - doesn't exist.  what's the point of using xml to simulate a
scripting language when you are already in a scripting language.  but
maybe i have missed something, given that this stuff exists (hence me
trying to understand it).
