Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.

I think this issue should be closed. This is not common user error, especially in Python 3. I can even imagine that you can subclass module, if it is an instance of special ModuleType subclass. It is a feature of Python that you can subclass any objects, not only classes, if they provide the particular interface.
