So super(A, c) refers to the baseclass object?

I don't like this. It partially suggests that A is a superclass of B.
I guess I have to be sure to notice the second parameter which tells of 
which instance I'm finding the superclass.

fyi I totally didn't notice the first parameter of super... was it there in 
previous versions of python?

class A(object):

class B(object):

class C(B,A):

print C.__mro__

print c.v()
print super(C, c).v()
print super(B, c).v()

(<class '__main__.C'>, <class '__main__.B'>, <class '__main__.A'>, <type
