[Tutor] Hiding Superclass Methods

Hi Everyone,

   I have a basic python question.  I am writing an n dimensional vector
class by inheriting from the builtin python list object.  I want to be
able to hide the parent object's methods in the derived class instances.
I know I can overload the method in the derived class and raise some
sort of an implementation error but that is not what I had in mind. I am
also not looking to use numpy. This is strictly for learning purposes.
Is there a way to hide superclass methods in python?

Thanks to all,
