py-copy-of-def-or-class will do that. Region is marked than.
Will put alias `py-copy-method' onto that.

Would you want to get the whole class too, when below a class and above 
a method definition?

Understand strictly speaking "method" only inside a class.
However, for your purposes, if cursor is between the opening of a class 
and its first method, dealing with class variables for example, "get 
method" would cover the whole class. Thats the question so far.

BTW what about return values? Is it good enough as 
`py-copy-of-def-or-class' does? Would an explicit sending of the 
beginning and and of the region then be of interest?
