@Chris - I don't like the idea of making new classes on the fly like that, it seems more likely to provoke bugs (as type(case) != SomeSpecificClass) anymore after that, vs just not relying on __str__ directly.

Going back to Michael's proposal of short description, long description and repr (with str == repr) for debugging. - that is missing id(), and id() is IMO definitely still needed.

I was proposing id(), friendlyId(), shortDescription(), and __str__ calls friendlyId(), and __repr__ is a regular <...> repr.
