I mean:
>>> class MyInt(int): pass     # my specific type
...
>>> isinstance(MyInt(5), int)  # int superclass included
True
>>> type(MyInt(5)) is int      # int superclass not included
False
>>> type(MyInt(5)) is MyInt    # check for specific type
True

Do you think I should rephrase it (or maybe just remove the (...))?
