I might be being bit OT, but, you should give Common Lisp a try. It
does something similar for functions versus variables.

As for the issue, I suppose I can see how this would be confusing. I
don't agree with your solution, though. I happen to like the
interchangeability of the different sorts of attributes, so that can be a method call, a classmethod call, or a call on a
function that is an attribute.
