Like this?:

class UserInput:
    def __init__(self):

    def test_callback(self, this_callback):
        print "testing the callback"

class Game:
    def __init__(self):
        self.ui = UserInput()

    def hello(self):
        print "hello world"

    def useUI(self):

def goodbye():
    print "goodbye world"

g = Game()

It took me a couple of minutes to understand your challenge. :-) Then I
remembered that "ui" is instantiated inside "g" and therefore callable with
the right parameter.

Thank you very, very much. I enjoy a good challenge.
