Good. I think it should be written somewhere that all methods are virtual: if
one method calls another by unqualified name, then it will call the most
derived one. Also, currently, calling "__init__" rule for bases is mandatory:
the new logic for bringing qualified named in the derived class module won't
work otherwise. I don't think this restriction is written down anywhere.
