Instances of 'staticmethod' or 'classmethod' are not callable.  I'm unsure why not, but it's good enough, as you need to go through various unexpected hops in order to try to call one.

'dict.fromkeys' is not a classmethod, as seen by "dict.__dict__['fromkeys']".  It's an internal object usually never seen by Python code.  I believe this is only because implementing a regular classmethod in C would be rather messy.
