Yes, exactly like that. 
Well done, you are now callback aware :-)

Can you modify the program *without modifying the classes* to use an
ordinary function as the callback? Say this goodbye function:

def goodbye():
     print "goodbye world"

This should not require more than 5 lines of new code and no changes

to the
existing code. It could be done in 3...

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.
