[Tutor] Classes vs. prototypes

I found a language called Io that's purely object
oriented but very minimalistic. At first it looked
good, but it has some of the same anti-function faults
as Ruby. its OO model, using prototypes, looked much
more flexible than the mainstream classes. Is there
any reason why Python doesn't (or shouldn't) support
prototypes, apart from that they were a very recent
invention when Python was created?
