Raymond, do we care whether or not the pure Python version of functools.partial supports inheritance and instance testing?

The constructor is technically documented as returning a "partial object" rather than a simple staticmethod instance with additional attributes.

My own preference leans towards keeping the closure based implementation due to its simplicity, which is what makes it particularly useful as a cross-check on the C implementation.
