I actually had problems with that, python complained when I tried to
inherit "object" and LoopingCall together and then use super(), which
doesn't make sense for Old style objects.

Thanks for the responses. I was getting the feeling that I'm just
trying to abuse language features with no real benefit. I'll stick to
the composition I have above, or even clean it up a little bit to be
more clear.
