Module mixins allow you to inherit from modules. This is how ruby achieves multiple inheritance, and I just wanted to show it's possible in python as well.

Python, 2 lines

def mixin(mod):
    return type("mixin(%s)" % (mod.__name__,), (object,), mod.__dict__)

Cool. What about accessing 'self'?

Okay, saw it in the wiki page.

Maybe the mixin function can do the include too, so this:

import testmixin

class Bar(mixin(testmixin)):

Can be replaced with this:

class Bar(mixin("testmixin")):
