That is valuable input. You don't care how a type or an instance of a 
type differ. Should be intersting to ask you to make a Cat object. I 
wonder if you are not going to ask if they mean a class or an instance 
of that class.

Anyways, more to the point, this is simply a debate on language and how 
to express Python concepts. If that bothers you, I'll take note.
