Surely. It was my impression that Python 2.0 was supposed to fix this
problem, but it looks like I just assumed that it did because they fixed the
way isinstance and issubclass work. I'm surprised that the approach wasn't
extended a bit further :-(

It would be a relatively easy thing to change in the Python source, though
I'm not sure what the impact would be. I'm not in the business of
maintaining Python, either. Posting a suggestion to comp.lang.python
wouldn't hurt, if you want to do it.
