I use staticmethods as a convenience to put related functions in the
namespace of a class. Perhaps foo.py contains class Foo with
staticmethod bar(). In client code I can say
from foo import Foo
If bar was a module method it would be
from foo import Foo, bar
I prefer the former in cases where bar is related to Foo.
