Given a choice between catering for Python programmers and catering for Java/C++ programmers, the Python docs obviously ought to chose to cater to Python programmers.  To a python programmer, calling C.f() is intuitive.

I would myself definitely *not* encourage the __class__.f() idiom.

Maybe we should just drop the reference to Java and C++ static methods.
