"But - what are we solving for here?"  I'll tell you what my fairly common use case is.  Suppose I have some test infrastructure code, and I want to make some assertions in it.  What I invariably end up doing is passing 'self' into the infrastructure method/class just so I can call the assert methods from it.  I'd much rather be just calling the assertions, without carrying the whole test object around.  It *works* to do that, but it bothers me every time I do it or read it in code, and it makes the infrastructure code needlessly more complicated and slightly harder to understand/read.
