I'm not familiar with POV-Ray. I want to note that with python standard
style, class names look like this: ClassName, instances look like this:
instance_name; it sounds like you want LMark to be an instance? Or you
want instances in A to use class naming style?

Second, is the LMark instance only used to perform one set of actions?
If that's the case, you can have users instantiate it in A and the
__init__ method will do the set of actions you need -- this will be just
as easy for the user as the alternative.
