I'm not sure that partial classes were ever really meant as anything other
than a useful feature for code-generating IDEs. But if you think that's
weird, read up on C# extension methods, which are how users of your classes
can add their own methods to them. True, this is also possible in Python
but requires monkey-patching which is rightfully frowned upon.
