I'd mentioned in my previous mail regarding changes in the code to make
use of super() and the replacement of UnboundMethods in the connect()
calls, but I didn't include some of the links to the Python developer
mails that made me want to investigate making these changes. The link
below started things off where Guido posted a message with the subject
"Let's get rid of unbound methods":


This thread went on a good while and then the topic of the super() call
came up in a thread begun again by Guido called "super() harmful?":


This subthread then spawned a great deal of mail.

For those of you interested, the link below takes you to the main
developer's mailing list. This link is also given on the Python website:


Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.

-Thomas Jefferson to James Smith, 1822
