That was my impression from looking through the code as well; jelly
requires old style python classes, and that's that.
I've hacked in a special case work around for Decimals, but it's just a
hack and not really suitable for general inclusion. I'm reluctant to
put further work into it, as I recall that there is a new version PB in
the works, which I suspect will completely redo how things are "jellied".
