Just for the record, the behaviour is documented, unfortunately in the very last line of the functools documentation: "Also, partial objects defined in classes behave like static methods and do not transform into bound methods during instance attribute look-up."

Concerning how exactly they should behave during that lookup, I'd use the least surprising variant, namely that they are not treated differently from other functions: The first parameter is implicitly "self".
